UK Charts: Gran Turismo 6 Crashes And Burns

The past few weeks have seen huge shits on the UK Charts thanks to the release of the PS4 and Xbox One.  These new consoles are having huge ramifications on the charts with next-gen releases of major third-party titles still doing well.  In fact, these titles are doing so well that brand new PS3 exclusive Gran Turismo 6 didn’t stand a chance.

Despite typically selling well in Europe it looks like Gran Turismo 6 isn’t doing so well in the UK.  The highly popular racing title only managed to launch in the eighth spot coming behind the likes of Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.  A disappointing turn for the franchise.

Both PS4 exclusives remained in the Top 20, though both took a dive.  Killzone: Shadow Fall is now in the ninth spot and Knack is in the eighteenth.  Still, Knack continued to sell better than Super Mario 3D World, which barely made the Top 20 this week.  All Xbox One exclusives have been kicked out of the Top 20.
