Despite only being on sale for two days, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has stormed to the top of the EMEAA charts in terms of both digital and retail sales.
Naturally, that also makes it the best-selling game of the week in the combined charts for the region, which encompasses 43 countries.
Activision's latest blockbuster fended off competition from a variety of new releases, as did EA's FIFA 20, which dropped no lower than No.2 in the retail and combined charts, and still managed to secure a No.4 in the download rankings.
FIFA was denied the digital No.2 spot by the ongoing success of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege (up 16 places to No.2) and Grand Theft Auto V (a non-mover at No.3). Rainbow Six appears much higher in the digital charts than it does in either retail or combined, suggesting downloads are the biggest source of sales at the moment.
The PS4 remake of Medieval was the next biggest new launch overall, at No.3 in the combined and retail charts, and No.5 in download.
Next came WWE 2K20 at No.4 in the combined charts, also outselling Obsidian's acclaimed The Outer Worlds in the digital charts.
Interestingly, the sci-fi RPG beat the wrestling title at retail, indicating digital sales for the latter may have been the clincher in the combined rankings. (It's worth noting the ISFE charts do not include Game Pass downloads, since these would not count as traditional sales).
