Mortal Kombat X Breaks Series Record in UK Games Chart

According to the UK sales monitor chart-track, Mortal Kombat X is the fastest selling game in the series’ 23 year history, the extremely violent fighting game jumped straight to first in the charts.

This warner-bros published game has also been chartered as the second-fasting selling UK game this year, right behind Battlefield: Hardline.

The console with the most sales is the PS4, which represents 61% of the games total sales, 38% coming from the Xbox One and only 1% coming from the PC (but this doesn’t represent downloads, and that could skew the figures a bit). The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions have been delayed to the summer with no final release date set.

This strong week for Mortal Kombat X has pushed Battlefield: Hardline off the top spot (where it’s been for the past 4 weeks) and into third, now behind GTA5.

In other news, the PC release of Grand Theft Auto V has boosted retail sales by 94%. However, as with all games in the official UK chart, digital sales are not counted which means you can ask the question, would Mortal Kombat X be at the top if that were the case?

The top 10 in the chart are as follows:

  1. Mortal Kombat X
  2. Grand Theft Auto V
  3. Battlefield Hardline
  4. FIFA 15
  5. Bloodborne
  6. Far Cry 4
  7. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
  8. Minecraft Xbox Edition
  9. Minecraft PlayStation Edition
  10. Dying Light
