The Amazing Spider-Man is more than living up to his name currently. The PS4-exclusive is the UK’s no.1 for a second week running, fending off the multi-format Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Eurogamer additionally notes that Marvel’s Spider-Man is also already close to beating God of War’s lifetime sales.

Lara Croft’s latest was forced to settle for #2. While this placing may sound impressive, it isn’t entirely good news.

Physical sales were down an alarming 70% over 2013’s franchise reboot, and were only slightly above Rise of the Tomb Raider – a timed Xbox exclusive.

Incidentally, and somewhat unsurprisingly, the PS4 version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider was the biggest selling last week.

The UK top 40 saw two other new arrivals – NBA 2K19 at #3, and NHL 19 at #28. The Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit failed to make the top 40, but it did make #17 in the Switch chart – two places higher than NBA 2K19.

Going back to the top ten, a spot of shuffling has occurred. Crash Bandicoot rises to #4, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is up two places to #5, GTA V moves down to #6, F1 2018 drops to #7, and then – for some reason unknown to us – The Elder Scrolls Online is back at #8, up from #27.

LEGO The Incredibles clings in at #9, while finally at #10 it’s Super Mario Odyssey.

PES 2019, Destiny 2: Forsaken, and Dragon Quest XI all dropped significantly, meanwhile. PES 2019 has fallen from #6 to #19, Destiny 2 went from #8 to #16, while Dragon Quest has plummeted from #2 all the way to #29. Erk! There is a chance that stock shortages are to blame for Dragon Quest’s swift descent, however.
