The Division sold 300,000 units in the UK on week one, says report

It's being reported by MCV, that Ubisoft’s The Division sold around 300,000 copies of the game over the course of its first week on sale.

This figure is said to be for both retail and digital sales, which is pretty impressive and makes it the fastest selling game ever to be released in Q1 of any year.

It's quite an achievement considering the game was delayed quite a few times, however it appears to have paid off. Perhaps the biggest turning point for us though was the beta, as before then we never really knew what to expect, however once the servers switched on and we got a taste, it really whet our appetite for more.

As pointed out by MCV, it just goes to show that releasing games in Q1 doesn't necessarily mean they won't sell. In fact with a lack of huge releases, it makes sense that quite the opposite would happen.
