Activision Blizzard’s Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is showing no signs of letting up in the UK charts. Having reclaimed its number one spot last week, Crash Bandicoot has now spent the longest period of any PS4 exclusive title at the top of the UK charts. That’s nothing to be scoffed at, especially considering the next best game in the category is The Last of Us. Nintendo Switch title Splatoon 2 remains at number two, with Grand Theft Auto V at number three refusing to budge an inch. Surely everyone has a copy now?
Bethesda has been the beneficiary of multiple retailer promotions, and Fallout 4 continues its rise up the charts, moving from ninth to fourth. In fifth and sixth, Doom and Dishonoured both leap back into the top 10, Doom no doubt boosted by the recent free weekend promotions on all formats, the free DLC and the reduced price point. New entrant at number seven is the 3DS title Miitopia, followed by Alternative’s Rugby League Live 4.
FIFA continues it slow slide down the charts to number nine, which is crazy when you consider the game sales had increased by 42% from the previous week. Ubisoft’s Bolivian-set tactical-shooter Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands re-enters the top ten, thanks to retailer price reductions, and people's fondness for shooting things.
The full top ten for the week ending July 31 looks like this:
- Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
- Splatoon 2
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Fallout 4
- Dishonoured 2
- Rugby League Live 4
- FIFA 17
- Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands
