Prey Reaches Number One in UK Sales Charts

Prey is the first Bethesda game since Fallout 4 to reach first place in the UK sales chart, as reported by Chart-Track (via GameSpot). Up until last week, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe held the top spot, and Prey didn’t manage to bring it down. Now, the tables have turned. No doubt, the fact that the re-release of Mario Kart 8 is available only on the Nintendo Switch has something to do with it.

The other entries on the list are the usual suspects. GTA V is in second place, and Mario Kart is in third. They’re followed by FIFA 17, Rocket League, Horizon Zero Dawn, Breath of the Wild, and others. You can check out the top-ten in the UK chart below. However, keep in mind that Chart-Track doesn’t take digital sales into consideration. The list would look dramatically different if they included those sales.

  1. Prey
  2. Grand Theft Auto V
  3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  4. FIFA 17
  5. Rocket League
  6. Lego Worlds
  7. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  8. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands
  9. Horizon Zero Dawn
  10. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild
