For the seventh consecutive week Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy has topped the UK physical sales charts despite new releases battling for pole position. New release Overcooked 2 is growing momentum but as a primarily digital title it’s been hard pushed to beat the current number one.
Only three of the games to launch in August so far have appeared in the top 10 physical chart. Madden NFL 19 has made it halfway in fifth position, Overcooked 2 is slowly rising but sitting in eighth currently, and the highly anticipated We Happy Few has only just scraped in at tenth place.
Lego The Incredibles has managed to maintain second place for another week, driven by the popularity of the movie and general love for the Lego franchise from fans. Lego DC Super Villains should perform just as well when it releases in October, though it will be up against a lot of competition in the form of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is still present in the charts even though it’s just under a month away from being five years old at this point. Rockstar is continuing to support Grand Theft Auto Online, further driving sales, but this may drop off when they launch the online element of Red Dead Redemption 2.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition reached eighth position this week, and Call of Duty: WW2 came in at sixth. God of War managed to make it to seventh place, and Super Mario Odyssey is currently sitting in ninth place.
PlayStation 4 was the most popular console for the week, with 68 percent of the sales of Madden 10 on the console, and 67 percent of We Happy Few sales on it too. 42 percent of the sales of Overcooked 2 were also on PlayStation 4, with 41 percent on Nintendo Switch, making it the second best performing platform.
