It’s good news for Sony – Marvel’s Spider-Man is the UK’s no.1 for a third consecutive week.

With FIFA 19 out this Friday, it’s doubtful Spidey will make it for a fourth week. There’s a chance it’ll make a triumphant return later in the year, however, especially with Black Friday approaching.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider continues to sell well too, claiming #2 for a second week running.

NBA 2K19 fell to #4 during its second week on sale, meanwhile, giving way to Crash Bandicoot which rises to #3.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and GTA V then hold onto #5 and #6 (respectively).

Super Mario Odyssey is up three places to #7, F1 2018 sticks around at #8, PUBG rises to #9, and Sonic Mania Plus re-enters the top ten at #10. The blue blur was at #12 last week.

Discounts have helped a few older titles re-enter the top 20 – Dishonored: Death of the Outsider climbs to #12, while Resident Evil VII is up from #31 to #13.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is back in the chart too, re-surfacing at #37. The recent Switch reveal probably had something to do with that.

Lastly, two of last year’s sports titles are about depart the top 40 – FIFA 18 clings in at #39, while WWE 2K18 is at #40. This is the life a sports game leads – popular for a year, then pushed to the wayside the moment its successor arrives. It’s the circle of life.
