Red Dead Redemption 2 is top of the UK sales chart once again as we reach the penultimate week before Christmas. The week ending December 15 saw Rockstar’s open-world title sell more physical copies than any other game, despite heavy retailer discounts helping some big hitters to climb the chart.
FIFA 19 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 were two of those AAA titles to rise up the chart-EA’s sports sim climbed one place to No.2 and Activision’s shooter is up four places to No.3. Nintendo’s Switch exclusive Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, meanwhile, is down three places to No.4 after a strong debut last week.
The Christmas No.1 will be confirmed in next week’s chart, with Red Dead Redemption 2, Black Ops 4, and FIFA 19 all vying for top spot. Those three games were awarded, 9, 8, and 7/10 respectively in GameSpot’s reviews; check out the full verdicts below.
