This weekâ€™s UK chart comes courtesy of GamesIndustry.biz, who earlier today revealed that Sony rules the roost in the current all-formats top 40.
The top three positions in the retail chart are held by PlayStation exclusives, with new release Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut taking the top spot. 91% of sales were for the PS5 version.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart â€“ which was close to exiting the top 40 entirely just weeks ago â€“ climbs to #2, while Spider-Man: Miles Morales returns to #3.
After making a surprise return to no.1 last week, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe falls to #4.
GTA V dropped from #2 to #6, Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 sticks around at #7, Animal Crossing: New Horizons fell three places to #8, while Assassin’s Creed Valhalla remains in the top ten for another week at #9.
Then at #10 itâ€™s FIFA 21. Retailers are starting to cut the price heavily ahead of this yearâ€™s edition.
Sticking with EA, Madden NFL 22 was the only new arrival in the chart. Sales were far lower than last yearâ€™s release, resulting in a not-too-impressive #19 placing. The PS5 version took the lionâ€™s share of sales, followed by the PS4 iteration.
