"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."
