Maxis’s The Sims 4 may not have warranted the highest critical praise on release but it’s doing fairly well at retail, at least in the UK. The latest UKIE game charts courtesy of Gfk Chart-Track have revealed that The Sims 4 is the top selling game across platforms in the country. Try to recall a PC/Mac game that last did that.
Even more interestingly, Watch Dogs managed to stay close to the top after all these months. Last week’s number one, 4A Games’ Metro: Redux, fell to third place while Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us: Remastered is in fourth. Diablo 3 is hanging around in fifth.
The remainder of the top ten consists of games that have been around for almost a year now with Call of Duty Ghosts, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, Minecraft: PS3 Edition and Grand Theft Auto 5. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is the only exception seeing as it released recently for PS3 and PS4.
