Thereâ€™s a notable theme to this weekâ€™s UK top 40 â€“ dozens of first-party PS4 titles have either risen by several places or re-entered the chart. This is all down to Sonyâ€™s current â€˜Days of Playâ€™ promotion, which sees numerous key titles discounted.
It seems a price cut to around Â£35 was enough to secure God of War the top spot, preventing Focus Interactiveâ€™s Vampyr from claiming a second week at no.1.
Popular PSVR pack-in PlayStation VR Worlds is back at #5, GT Sport shifts to #11, and Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition has risen to #17. Shadow of the Colossus, Wipeout: Omega Collection, Knowledge is Power, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy all re-enter the lower end of the top 40, meanwhile.
Going back to the top 10, FIFA 18 remains at #2 thanks to World Cup fever. Possibly due to a strong E3 showing, Fallout 4 rises to #3. Detroit: Become Human stays put at #4.
GTA V moved up three places to take #6, and is followed by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Vampyr, AC: Origins, and finally Call of Duty: WWII at #10.
All of the Switchâ€™s big name-titles also moved up a few places this week, which makes us wonder if Fortniteâ€™s arrival helped Nintendo shift a few more systems. Just an observation.
Also of note: Konamiâ€™s Super Bomberman R failed not only to make the top 40, but the top 20 individual format charts as well. The same goes for the retail release of Team 17â€™s Yokuâ€™s Island Express, but thatâ€™s a slightly different story due to the delay between its digital and physical release.
