Gran Turismo 6, GTA 5, CoD: Ghosts battle for sales charts

Chart-Track has released some new info on weekend sales in the UK, and it’s seems Gran Turismo 6 could use some extra horsepower right about now. The recently released driving simulator can’t compete with powerhouses Grand Theft Auto 5 and Call of Duty: Ghosts, even while being the only major new release of the period. GTA 5 sales were around 5 times higher than those of Gran Turismo 6.

Activision was still leading the charts with its newest franchise-member, followed by top 2 and 3 sales positions occupied by EA (via Fifa 2014 and Battlefield 4).

It’s important to mention that many retailers offered discounts on various games, which would partially explain the disappointing GT6 sales. Gran Turismo 6 also lacks next-gen support, which doesn’t help at all. Also keep in mind that Chart-Track does not include digital sales in their analysis, however, it’s likely that online sales via Playstation Network were similar. Here’s the top seller list:

  1. Call of Duty – Ghosts (Activision)
  2. Fifa 2014 – (EA)
  3. Battlefield 4 (EA)
  4. Assassin’s Creed IV (Ubisoft)
  5. Grand Theft Auto V (Rockstar)
  6. Lego’s Marvel Superheroes (Warner Bros.)
  7. Just Dance 2014 (Ubisoft)
  8. Gran Turismo 6 (Sony)

    Not surprising GTA and COD are juggernauts and have a larger fanbase.
