Week ending on February 29, 2020, the UK’s Top 10 chart of the best selling retail and wholesale video games, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare returns to the top of the UK physical charts. Two Point Hospital has just released and took the second position. FIFA 20 takes the third place.

Two Point Hospital has had a great start in the UK physical sales chart. The game launched last week and pushed its way up to second place in the chart.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare took the top spot for the week thanks to a 30 percent week-on-week increase in sales, preventing Two Point Hospital from taking the top. It’s possible that with digital sales combined Two Point Hospital was the real best-seller last week, but we won’t know that until later in the week.

Two Point Hospital is the spiritual sequel to Theme Hospital. When the predecessor launched in 1997 it topped sales charts for its launch window.

Most copies of Two Point Hospital were sold for Nintendo Switch, with 55 percent of all copies being purchased for Nintendo’s hybrid console. The PlayStation 4 was the second-best selling platform for the game with 34 percent of sales, and the Xbox One took the remaining 12 percent.

Rune Factory 4 is another new release for last week. While the game didn’t break into the top ten charts, it did make it to seventeenth place during its launch period.

The largest new release of the last weekly chart, Vanquish & Bayonetta Tenth Anniversary Collection, dropped out of the top forty best-selling games at retail altogether. Crytek’s new game on the other hand, Hunt: Showdown, dropped from twenty-ninth to fortieth place with a 46 percent decrease in week-on-week sales.

A number of games saw a sales boost thanks to promotional pricing with retailers last week. The Division 2, for example, has re-entered the top ten, previously twelfth, in seventh place. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy jumped from seventeenth to eighth thanks to a 17 percent boost to week-on-week sales. Finally, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled shot up to tenth from twenty-second place with a 35 percent increase to week-on-week sales.

Dreams is seeing steady sales despite being a PlayStation 4 exclusive. The game’s sales dipped by 33 percent week-on-week, making it fall one place to nineteenth in the chart this week.
