FIFA 18 rules weekly UK chart, Grand Theft Auto V stays second

It seems like EA Sports' Fifa 18 isn't planning on leaving anytime yet, with the game establishing a dominion over UK charts ever since it launched, it seems. "Old man" GTA V keeps punching above its weight coming in second.

Note that we're talking about boxed, physical copies here, although it's been a pretty quiet week. Apparently, Milestone's Gravel is the only game that launched physical copies in the last week and the market shouldn't change much in the next week or two, at least as far as major titles are concerned.

Having said that, the top three games, Fifa 18, GTA V and CoD:WWII remain unchanged from last week. Interestingly enough, all three have seen heavy dips in sales, as much as 29 per cent, 24 per cent and 15 percent, respectively.

The rest of the list reshuffled somewhat, even though sales behind the new realignment are being described as meagre, at best. In fact, PUBG's jump from fifteenth to eight place comes as a result of only a 4 per cent boost. 

Mario Kart 8: Deluxe has been doing pretty well, climbing up to fourth spot from previous eight, having done so thanks to a 1 per cent sales increase. Super Mario Odyssey and the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild climbed up to sixth and ninth spot, respectively.

It is said most of March will be relatively uneventful, with the closest major releases being the Sea of Thieves, which is slated for launch on 20 March 2018 and Far Cry 5, which should hit the shelves on 27 March 2018.
