Despite high street stores being closed, physical game sales remain strong in the UK. GI.biz reports 350k games were sold last week, resulting in a million game sales since lockdown began.
As per the last couple of weeks, console pack-in titles are performing well, suggesting PS4 and Xbox One bundles are flying off store shelves. Well, warehouse shelves â€“ online retail is mostly supplying the current demand.
Itâ€™s still bad news for Nintendo, however. Switch stock has practically run out, resulting in Nintendoâ€™s big hitters entering freefall. Just two Switch games remain in the top 20. Even the evergreen Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has felt the impact, leaving the top 20 for the first time in three years.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was the UKâ€™s biggest selling game of last week, holding onto no.1 for a second week running. New release Resident Evil 3 arrived at #2, ushering FIFA 20 to #3. Animal Crossing: New Horizons fell by one position too, now at #4.
At #5 itâ€™s another new arrival â€“ Atlusâ€™ critically acclaimed JRPG Persona 5 Royal. Xbox One pack-in Forza Horizon 4 fell to #6, Crash N. Sane Trilogy remained at #7, while GTA V dropped two places to #8.
EA’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order re-entered the top ten at #9, up from #15. Then at #10 itâ€™s the return of another top ten stalwart â€“ Minecraft: Xbox Edition.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fuelled, Spyro Reignited Trilogy and DOOM Eternal departed the top ten, meanwhile, with Bethesdaâ€™s hellish shooter taking a tumble to #15. We expected it to stick around a little longer.
