Xbox One UK Retail Chart - Infinite Warfare Knocks Battlefield 1 Off Top Spot

    Let's be real for a sec, it's only because COD4R is included and we (the people who bought Infinite Warfare) only bought it because of that.

    This is my opinion on Infinite Warfare, please note that before I learned about MWR, I didn't want to buy a CoD game ever again, and this is probably my last purchase for this franchise:

    - Campaign: It's surprisingly good, I've been expecting some very stinky crap to be honest ! I love the Sci-Fi setting for this one (hated the previous ones), it's kind of realistic in a Dark Matter way and I really enjoy the fact that I have my own ship and can launch missions from a map instead of going from a level to another one with a cutscene in between, the side missions add an RPG feeling and even if it's very light it sounds good for the future of this (IMO) dying franchise.

    Multiplayer: I don't really have a lot to say about that except that I hate it, CoD has been a Titanfall-wannabe since Advanced Warfare and even though I absolutely LOVE Titanfall, I hate what CoD is tying to be, it's everything but good, a shit clone of a great game.

    Zombies: It's good, really good, it feels like the good old Treyarch Zombies mode but it adds the cool new things from Black Ops 3 Zombies, once again, I was surprised in a good way.

    Modern Warfare Remastered: It's as enjoyable as the original, only way better, especially the lighting, I lost my shit when the nuke blew off... Beauty in destruction, right ? Okay the campaign is awesome but the multiplayer really is the cherry on top of the cake, the whole game is totally remade but it still feels like the original.

    Fascinating that Minecraft is still up there despite little price variation. I guess the younger gamers are still getting it bundled with the console when they upgrade.

    Charts are interesting. Is this a one off story or a new weekly feature?

    Haven't checked the actual numbers myself but IW sales on opening week are less than half of BLOPS3.

    And I bet a good chunk of those sales are only for MW Remastered too, not people wanting IW itself.

    I thought this was interesting as well. Could it be expanded to include other regions if there is reliable data?

    On a side note I'm rather surprised Farming Simulator 17 made it to the chart let alone 8th place.

    We're planning on bringing it every week.

    I think it's interesting too.

    2 years old and GTA V is still in the top 10 sales. Considering the price of GTA V is still high rockstar must be making a killing!

    Then I see this in my inbox - https://gamerant.com/call-of-duty-infinite-warfare-sales-757...

    "Infinite Warfare sales down 50% from Blops3 launch in UK"

    Never quite understood how the CoD launches effect Activision's stock - even in the record breaking years the value would dip a few mrkn $ each time (and now seeing the same news bit on a financial site linked out of my portfolio haha)

    That's a clickbait pretty much! BLOPS 3 didn't have competition back then.

    I don't like this kind of posts, because people just start flaming on games they don't like (not that it isn't happening everyday, but more excuses to do so).

    Infinite Warfare is a fantastic game! Fantastic Campaign, fun zombies experience and the Multiplayer is much more well-made than Blops 3. The MW Remaster is amazing as well. 10/10 package!

    Not trying to compare any of the FPS that are out at all! Everyone have their own taste of FPS games.

    I wanted to get IW for that exact reason, but that money went into Horizon 3 instead of. I think I made a better investment.....
