Week ending on June 15, 2019, the UK’s Top 10 chart of the best selling retail and wholesale video games, FIFA 19 stays on top of the physical chart. Days Gone keeps to the second position, and Marvel’s Spider-Man stays in the third place.

PlayStation titles have maintained their takeover of the UK’s weekly retail sales chart thanks to Sony’s Days of Play promotional discounts.

The Days of Play promotion began before E3 2019, and has slashed the prices of many first and third-party titles for Sony, as well as a number of hardware bundles for PlayStation 4 consoles, and PlayStation VR.

Last week, mainly as a result of Days of Play, FIFA returned to the top spot in the UK chart for the first time since January of this year. Days of Play continues to keep prices low for both the game and hardware bundles it’s packaged with, meaning that it has managed to stay in the top spot for another week running. Sales for FIFA 19 actually saw a week-on-week rise of 53 percent for the week it first claimed the top spot, and have risen by a further 18 percent over the past week.

Days Gone has held strong in second place in the chart, aided once again by the Days of Play promotion. The game saw a rise in sales week-on-week of 35 percent. Similarly, Marvel’s Spider-Man has stuck around in third place with a rise in sales of 45 percent week-on-week.

Forza Horizon 4 is the highest entry in the chart that isn’t available on PlayStation 4. The title rose from twelfth place to fourth this week with an 88 percent increase in week-on-week sales. This was almost certainly driven by the reveal of the upcoming expansion for the game during Microsoft’s E3 press conference, Lego Speed Champions.

Battlefield 5 saw a boost of 65 percent in week-on-week sales, landing it in sixth place this week, while Anthem saw an increase of 81 percent in week-on-week sales, rising to eighth place. Anthem’s performance is particularly surprising considering the amount of bad press the game has received recently, and the lack of new announcements, and coverage by publisher EA, during E3.
