Sony Entertainment Europe have confirmed that Ubisoft's Far Cry 5 ended up as the best selling game on PlayStation Store in March 2018, which is sure to go nicely with the title of highest sold boxed game in the UK for two weeks running.

Ubisoft's open world cult-fighting shooter came ahead of Josef Fares' A Way Out. Having said that, the game's director Fares has already started working on another game , despite the fact A Way Out launched only recently.

It has been said that 2018 has had one of quieter starts to the year and we're inclined to agree. This however brought about plenty of re-entries to the chart, such as Horizon: Zero Dawn. At this tempo, this is most certainly not the last time we hear about Horizon: Zero Dawn sales

Gang Beasts has taken third spot while Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege has come back to fifth. Even though it dropped from first spot in February to sixth in March, FIFA 18 seems to be keeping up a steady presence on all kinds of charts - a testament to the game's popularity.

Speaking of popularity, Grand Theft auto refuses to acknowledge its age, proudly sitting in lucky seventh. GTA V has turned out to be the most lucrative commercial entertainment product ever, racking up the sort of figures that would make Michael Jackson's skin crawl.

Okay, maybe that wasn't the best of comparisons but you catch my drift - it's becoming infinitely more profitable to make good games any other art. Not that we're favouring any craft here, we're simply stating the obvious.

The last of Us Remastered came in sixth while Ubisoft's roof jumping saga Assassin's Creed Origins came in ninth. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition rounds up March 2018's top ten on PlayStation Store .

Despite a great commercial start , Far Cry 5 is still splitting opinions, which only fuels the demand even more, or at least it would appear so. The game however still seems to deliver the same old Far Cry recipe, with same old hilarious glitches we've gotten used to seeing from the franchise.
