First Contact Entertainment’s Firewall Zero Hour made an impressive debut in the UK software charts last week (for an exclusive PSVR game), coming in just outside the top ten in the 11th spot. We’d assumed we’d see a dramatic fall for the game this week, but that’s not the case.
The VR shooter only fell three places this week, landing in 14th. Considering this is on the same week as the fastest-selling release of the year, Insomniac’s PS4-exclusive Spider-Man game, we’d say that’s a job well done.
As with last week, PlayStation VR Worlds is just a few spaces behind Firewall, this time in 17th. That’s telling as the PSVR minigame compilation comes packed in with the headset itself, which has been on offer in the UK with bundles that include Firewall at £199.99. No doubt that’s helping Firewall’s performance, though we’d like to think the sheer quality of the competitive experience has something to do with it too.
The UK charts only track physical sales, so it doesn’t account for digital copies sold via the PlayStation Store. Still, last month’s store charts for August put the game in third place for European VR charts, so it’s doing well there too. It even topped the US charts.
