God of War has done the business for Sony, debuting at top spot in the UK video game chart.

The PlayStation 4 exclusive enjoyed the second biggest week one release so far this year behind Far Cry 5, based on physical sales only (Chart-Track doesn't include download sales in its data).

God of War is also the new week one best-seller for the franchise, beating the previous record held by God of War 3, which came out on PS3 in 2010. (The first God of War launched on PS2 back in 2005, the second on PS2 in 2007.)

Elsewhere, Sega's PS4 game Yakuza 6 debuted at number three with the biggest week one sales for the franchise (the previous best was 2017's Yakuza Kiwami, a PS4 remake of the original Yakuza).

  1. God of War
