Bethesda must be happy with Prey hitting number one on the U.K. charts after a very disappointing response from its fans on launch date. Beating other notable video games to the top slot, this video game is now established as one of the top video games that gamers will be glad to own.

Prey Has Beaten Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

When it was released in the U.K. a week ago, Prey was only second to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. However, it seems avid fans of the video game got the clue and pushed it to the top slot on its second week of release. The latest sci-fi horror-adventure video game has also beaten other notables like Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Rocket League, GTA V, and many others in the top rankings.

This Is The First Time Since 2015

According to Chart-Track, a market research company in the U.K., this recent feat of Prey is remarkable. They claim that this is the first time that Bethesda has accomplished this coup since the number one sales performance of Fallout in 2015. In doing so, it shoved down Mario Kart 8 Deluxe from the top position.

The latest news is that MK8 is now languishing on third, with GTA V grabbing the second spot. Some observers believe that MK8 being available only on the Nintendo Switch and not on all platforms must have affected its performance in the sales charts. Nintendo should take the hint if it wants to stay on top.

How Long Will Prey Manage To Stay On Top?

It seems today's gamers are going for the horror, sci-fi genre of video games. Prey appears to be one of the spear points in this type of video games. The game is focused primarily on exploring the game's world of horror. It requires gamers to depend on their wits as they encounter mysterious creatures in the huge space station where all the action is taking place. But the question is: how long will Prey manage to hold off the other notables from the top position?
