Quantic Dream and David Cage's Detroit: Become Human has taken over UK physical sales chart, followed by State of Decay 2 and Dark Souls Remastered. Unfortunately, the God of War record Barlog and Co were hoping for ain't happening.

God of War has managed five weeks in the pole position, hoping to match the six week record set by The Last of Us back in 2013. Nevertheless, we're sure Barlog and Co won't be shedding any tears. Besides, it's not like Kratos hasn't broken enough records already.

Of course, the real highlight here is Detroit: Become Human and as far as boxed sales go, the game sold about the same as its predecessor, Beyond Two Souls. Digital sales are said to extend this lead further significantly.

Unfortunately for Quantic Dream, Detroit: Become Human still sold four times less than their hit game from 2010, Heavy Rain. This somewhat justifies Sony's scepticism and insistence on lifting review bans only a day ahead of launch.

Xbox One exclusive State of Decay 2 has made quite the splash, coming in third and lagging behind Detroit: Become Human by less than 4 thousand copies. The game has managed to hit a population of one million players in just two days after launch, which is certainly good news for Undead Labs and Microsoft.

The third new addition to the UK boxed sales chart is Dark Souls Remastered, who coincidentally came in third, followed by FIFA 18 and God of War. Far Cry 5 dropped one place to sixth, while Blizzard's Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition skipped 33 places and sits sixth, thanks to some hefty promotions.
