The record breaking launch of Pokemon Sun & Moon cannot deny the Black Friday boosted ‘FIFA 17’ a return to No1 as it shoots up 2 places from No3.
‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ at No2 also spoils Nintendo’s party by making the most of a Black Friday windfall and ensuring ‘Pokemon Sun’ debuts at No3 and ‘Pokemon Moon’ at No4. However, it is a spectacular launch for Nintendo, combined they would have debuted in top spot. The Black Friday promotions have a huge effect on nearly every Top 40 title with big gains for PS4 games bundled with hardware, in particular ‘Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’ which re-enters the Top 40 at No8, ‘Driveclub’, a re-entry at No20 and ‘Ratchet & Clank’ a re-entry at No25. In fact, it is the biggest week for PS4 console hardware since launch, beating last year’s Black Friday.
