Even with the launch of NiohGrand Theft Auto V was able to finish in 1st last week on the UK software chart, after a 1% increase in sales. GTA V becomes the fifth title with at least 12 first place finishes on the UK chart, joining Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (18), Wii Fit (16), Zumba Fitness (13), and FIFA 14 (12).

As for Nioh, it opened in 2nd place. However, if you go by revenue, and not units sold, Nioh actually beat Grand Theft Auto V, thanks to its higher price tag.
