Call it a comeback: 2013 in numbers


"The UK physical games market staged a comeback in 2013 with the help of new consoles, Grand Theft Auto V and FIFA. MCV analyses the figures.

It was not quite a full recovery for the UK games market in 2013, but it was a record-breaking year nevertheless.

Grand Theft Auto V took the plaudits becoming the fastest selling launch in history. It sold more in week one than Call of Duty: Ghosts, FIFA 14, Batman: Arkham Origins, Pokemon X, Pokemon Y, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Battlefield 4 put together, and by the end of the year had shifted an incredible 3.67m units. That's over 1m more than its nearest rival."

The story is too old to be commented.
