If your like me, or you’ve read the various raving reviews online, then you’ll already understand why The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has topped the UK sales chart. I alone have put in 75 hours over the past 7 days.
All my bragging rights aside given the tremendous amounts of hype around the game it comes as no surprise that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has enjoyed the biggest launch of 2015 so far betting the previous title holder, Battlefield:Hardline.
While its predecessor enjoyed the top spot when it released on Xbox 360, sales figures show that Wild Hunt outsold The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings by 608%. Now that is a massive figure.
Also enjoying the limelight in the all formats chart is Farming Simulator 15 coming in at second place. I never knew virtual farming was so popular outside of Minecraft. My mistake.
