Top 10 UK Games Chart: Borderlands 3 Beats Gears 5 And PES 2020 In Busy Week

What are you playing this week?


In a very busy week for new releases, it's Borderlands 3 that prevails after coming top of the UK all-format physical sales chart. 2K's new looter-shooter comes ahead of Xbox One exclusive Gears 5 and Konami's newest sports title, PES 2020, which must settle for No.2 and No.3, respectively.

The new titles push last week's winner, NBA 2K20, to No.4 this week, while sales monitor Chart-Track places yet another new entry, Greedfall, at No.5. The final new entries for the week ending September 14 are Daemon X Machina at No.19 and NHL 20 at No.36.

Interestingly, reports that Borderlands 3 is the biggest boxed game launch of 2019 in the UK--but that the game also sold less than half the physical copies its predecessor, Borderlands 2, managed back in 2012. Gears 5, meanwhile, sold just 25% of what Gears of War 4 managed in its own launch week.

However, it should be noted that digital sales--which generally continue to increase--are not counted in the official charts, while Microsoft exclusives are now available for no extra cost with Xbox Game Pass. Finally, says PES 2020 week-one sales are up 18.5% on last year's game.
