The latest entry in Activision’s Call of Duty series goes straight to the top of the UK boxed games charts.
91 per cent of Week One sales were for the newer PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while a measly nine per cent of units sold were for the the PS3 and 360.
This is the seventh biggest Call of Duty title in terms of revenue. This is likely the result of Black Ops III only launching on Friday – the first time in six years. Other Call of Duty titles launched on Tuesday, therefore we can’t really compare Black Ops III sales to that of last year’s Advanced Warfare.
Meanwhile, FIFA 16 rises on place to No.2. EA’s Need for Speed debuts in third place, too.
Sales of Halo 5: Guardians dropped 78 per cent last week as the sci-fi shooter falls from the top spot to No.4. Assassin’s Creed drops three places to No.5 as sales decline 55 per cent.
And further down the charts, a retailer promotion causes sales of Mario Kart 7 to shoot up 898 per cent to No.14.
