This week chart is dull as dishwater with so it’s just as well there’s a bit of scandal to go with it. According to GamesIndustry.Biz the UKIE chart for the week ending January 25th has Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot at the top, but UKIE themselves have Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Other games are in different places in the two charts but both have The Witcher 3 storming back up to number 12, t no doubt due to the Netflix series and that annoyingly catchy song.
I can see no way round the two chart predicament so, for the first and hopefully last time, here is your UK games chart for the week ending January 25th.
Both of them.

I will update this post when either UKIE or GamesINdustry.Biz decide who is right.
Further down the full top 40, in the UKIE version at least, a large number of games are recharting due to sales. Argos asre still selling 3DS titles for a few quid so they are hanging around but down at number 39 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is a re-entry, who on earth is buying that?
