Metal Gear Survive debuts at nr 6 in the UK weekly charts

The first retail sale numbers for Metal Gear Survive are in. The game launched last week in the United Kingdom for a budgeted price of £25, and debuted at number 6 in the charts. writes:

“The Konami spin-off reached No.6. The last Metal Gear spin-off title, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance in February 2013, debuted at No.2 and sold 85% more units in its first week.

Metal Gear Survive is primarily an online multiplayer game and digital download sales have increased significantly since 2013. As a result, it’s likely the game will have performed much better than the physical GfK charts are suggesting.

PS4 accounted for 68% of Metal Gear Survive’s sales, with the remainder coming on Xbox One. The title had a budget price point of around £25, so in terms of revenue, it only reached No.11 in the charts.”

In the individual platform charts, the PlayStation 4 version of the game can be found at number 13, while the Xbox One version holds the 33rd spot.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain debuted at number 1 when it came out in the UK, and even compared to another spin-off title, Metal Gear Rising, performance of Survive is significantly down, but this can also partially be due to a higher percentage of digital purchases, as Gamesindustry points out. Still, it’s no secret Survive did not generate the same excitement that we are used to seeing from a new Metal Gear title.
