The latest UK game sales have just released. No major surprises or upsets, but there are some things of note.
Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy tops the charts and becomes the UK’s bestselling single format box release of this year. It narrowly beats out Horizon Zero Down and the only other game to do better in its debut week is Ghost Recon: Wildlands which was a multi-platform release.
Grand Theft Auto has seen a 12% increase in sales. This is in spite of recent criticisms against Take-Two for taking down the modding tool OpenIV. Many players felt that this was Take-Two taking a stance against single player mods and going back on their world although Take-Two disputes this. Take-Two also took down multiplayer cheating tools for GTA Online and made the creators donate to charity so perhaps the move created enough good PR to explain the increase.
As usual the list only takes into account physical copies and not digital sales.
