F1 2018 dominates EMEA charts

But Rainbow Six tops the digital rankings

F1 2018 was the biggest game across EMEA regions for digital and physical sales.

The Codemasters racing title was comfortably the No.1 physical retail game for the week August 26th, and was the No.2 digital game for the same period. The title missed out on the digital top spot due to continued strong sales of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege on PC, which was boosted by PR and marketing activity, including a free trial weekend.

The other big new release of the week was Shenmue I and II, which made No.8 in the digital charts, No.2 in the physical retail charts and No.3 in the combined charts.

F1 2018's most successful SKU was the PS4 edition, as was the case with Shenmue I and II. PS4 is the dominant platform in most EMEA regions.
