In celebration of its 15 year anniversary, Amazon.co.uk has revealed the top-selling products in their history, with Grand Theft Auto V taking home the title of fastest selling video game of all time.
While Grand Theft Auto V wasn’t able to capture the #1 spot in the video games best-sellers, it did manage to take fourth place after just one month on the market:
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
- Call of Duty: Black Ops
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
- FIFA 10

Ketu Patel, Video Games and Software Category Leader at Amazon UK, has this to say about the best sellers:
Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto and FIFA are three of the largest entertainment franchises in the world, so it’s no surprise to see them dominating the top ten best-selling games chart. The success of Skyrim suggests that there is a real appetite for epic fantasy games, whilst Zumba Fitness’s appearance in tenth place shows just how big Nintendo Wii’s fanbase is in the UK.
