Last week’s chart was pretty stagnant, or so we thought. This week’s chart – the first of 2019 – is almost on total lockdown, with just a few titles swapping positions here and there.
We do have a new no.1, however – FIFA 19 returns to the top of the chart to see 2019 in.
This pushes RDR2 down to #2. Positions #3, #4, #5 and #6 then remain unchanged, held by Black Ops 4, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Battlefield V, and Forza Horizon 4 (respectively).
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Crash Bandicoot swapped positions to take #7 and #8. Spyro fell two positions to #9, while AC Odyssey re-entered the top ten at #10.
Elsewhere, Starlink: Battle for Atlas continues to rise – Ubisoft’s toys to life title is up three places to #21. This is, of course, fuelled by hefty price cuts.
As for re-entries, LEGO Worlds, Project CARS 2, Football Manager 2019, and Tekken 7 all re-appeared at the lower end of the chart.
Project CARS 2 and Tekken 7 are the current, and frequently discounted, Xbox One pack-ins used by Currys PC World, explaining why they always show up in the chart together.
This week sees the first major releases of 2019 – Tales Of Vesperia Definitive Edition and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. Check back next Monday to see how they performed.
