With nothing to challenge it, Far Cry 5 remains the UKâ€™s no.1 for the third week running. Sounds like sales far exceed FIFA 18 at #2, as Ukie describes its chart position as â€œcomfortableâ€.
Backing this up, the ever-insightful GamesIndusty.biz states that â€œselling around 3,500 copies would have got any game into the Top Ten this week.â€
This also sheds light on how Extinction â€“ last weekâ€™s only notable retail release â€“ has performed, as the critically mauled action game failed to make the top 40. Our guess? A few hundred copies, tops.
Incidentally, Gun*Gal 2 also failed to make the Switch top 20.
Going back to the top ten, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe rose to #3. GTA V also moved up a few positions, taking #4. PUBG held onto #5.
Sea of Thieves fell from #3 to #6, golden oldie Fallout 4 re-entered the top ten at #7, Super Mario Odyssey took #8, GT: Sport parked up at #9 â€“ rising from #15 â€“ while Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remains at #10 for another week.
Call of Duty: WWII and Forza Motorsport 7 both depart the top ten, meanwhile.
Friday’s launch of God of War should help the UKâ€™s currently flagging software sales. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life stands a good chance of breaking next weekâ€™s top five, too.
