Now Playing: Final Fantasy 15 - Video Review

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Final Fantasy XV debuts at No.2 in the UK all-format charts for the week ending December 3. Sales monitor Chart-Track reports it's the series' second-biggest launch ever, after Final Fantasy XIII.

Final Fantasy XV can't quite topple FIFA 17, however, with EA's sporting giant staying at the top of the table for the second week running. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is pushed to No.3, while Battlefield 1 and Forza Horizon 3 round off the top 5.

Ubisoft's snow-sports title Steep struggles in its first week, coming in at No. 24, while a 3DS release of Super Mario Maker helps it into No. 25.

The hugely successful Pokemon Sun and Moon drop to No.9 and No.8 respectively, though the pair are now Nintendo's fastest-selling games ever in both the UK and America.

Check out the full top 10 in the list below. This table does not include digital sales data, and so should not be considered representative of all UK game sales.

  1. FIFA 17
  2. Final Fantasy XV
  3. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  4. Battlefield 1
  5. Forza Horizon 3
  6. Watch Dogs 2
  7. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
  8. Pokemon Moon
  9. Pokemon Sun
  10. Minecraft: Xbox Edition

Unchartered still in top 10. Released months ago. Pretty decent for an exclusive.

I wasn't that impress what I saw and read all the reviews on FF15 and so with that, this is a PC wait for me but nevertheless, congratulations to the top 10 winners.

More of an extreme sports baaed on the beta.

Uncharted 4 is a strange one. Guessing this includes bundles.
