DOOM Tries Hard But Fails to Top Uncharted 4 in UK Charts
DOOM was released exactly ten days ago on May 13, 2016 while Uncharted 4 A Thief’s End came out on May 10, 2016. This put both the games in the same release week and hence in a race for sales to the top of charts. As far as the UK top charts are concerned, DOOM had come close to beat Naughty Dog’s title but failed, like all other games.
Undoubtedly, Uncharted 4 is the prettiest game we have ever seen, and that combined with the unmatched level of polishing it has had in everything has ensured it stays on top in the UK charts even in the second week of release.
As compared to the first week, Uncharted 4 sales slumped by a massive 78 percent in week two. In comparison, the sales of DOOM went down by only 35 percent which is fairly commendable.
However, Naughty Dog is still number one in the UK, with DOOM close behind in tow. The two are followed by Homefront: The Revolution by Dambuster Studios at number three. Here’s a rundown on the top games:
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
- Homefront The Revolution
- Call of Duty: Black Ops III
- Fire Emblem Fates Birthright
- Valkyria Chronicles Remastered
Homefront The Revolution is the new big entry in the charts which has raced to the number three spot, over all the other new entries except for the aforementioned two games.
Uncharted 4 has also topped the charts everywhere else, for instance, in Japan it was the number one selling game in the release week too. The game also beat Uncharted 3’s opening week sales by a massive 66 percent.
