Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the UK’s No.1 video game, recording the second largest launch of the year, only bettered by FIFA 17.
Sales of the space-themed shooter are, however, way down on last year’s Black Ops 3, with ChartTrack noting a 48.4 per cent decline in physical units year-on-year. Even taking into account only PS4 and Xbox One format sales, Infinite Warfare trails Black Ops 3 by 43.6 per cent.
Infinite Warfare sold 55 per cent of its psychical launch week total on PS4, with 45 per cent on Xbox One.
Battlefield 1 slips into second place, FIFA 17 holds in third and Skyrim Special Edition drops into fourth. Titanfall 2 drops a place into fifth, followed by SEGA’s Football Manager 2017 in sixth.
Elsewhere, a retailer price push and TV ads have helped Skylanders Imaginators jump 131 per cent, climbing from 19th to 7th.
