first_imgUK Charts: Metal Gear Survive debuts at No.6£25 spin-off game fails to have a big impact on the chartsChristopher DringHead of Games B2BMonday 26th February 2018Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleGfKMetal Gear Survive headlines a very quiet week for UK games retail, although struggles to make a meaningful impact on the charts.The Konami spin-off reached No.6. The last Metal Gear spin-off title, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance in February 2013, debuted at No.2 and sold 85% more units in its first week.Metal Gear Survive is primarily an online multiplayer game and digital download sales have increased significantly since 2013. As a result, it’s likely the game will have performed much better than the physical GfK charts are suggesting.PS4 accounted for 68% of Metal Gear Survive’s sales, with the remainder coming on Xbox One. The title had a budget price point of around £25, so in terms of revenue, it only reached No.11 in the charts. Otherwise, it’s a pretty quiet week for games once again. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet is the only other new game at No.37. FIFA 18 retains the No.1 spot for a second week in a row. And promotional activity around the first 2 Uncharted games (the PS4 versions) sees both games return to the charts (Uncharted 2 up 575% and Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune up 622%).
