Meanwhile, Street Fighter 5 lags behind predecessor’s first week sales.
Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has set a new world record, at least in the UK according to Gfk Chart-Track. The title has claimed more number one selling spots than any other game in the franchise’s history which is no small feat.
Street Fighter 5 had a strong debut but its sales couldn’t match that of Street Fighter 4 on PC, Xbox 360 and PC which “remains the benchmark” till now.
FIFA 16 is in third place followed by LEGO Marvel Avengers and Grand Theft Auto 5. Star Wars Battlefront is in sixth place with Fallout 4 in seventh and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege in eighth. The other big debut of the week was Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon in ninth place. Minecraft: Story Mode continues to hang on at ninth place.
Far Cry Primal and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 will be out this week so it will be interesting to see their impact on sales charts. Stay tuned for more.
