Despite underperforming at physical retail compared to its predecessor, FIFA 19 is number one for its second week on sale. The drop from last week's sales numbers is 64 per cent, which actually isn't too bad for a game -- especially one that will likely have far longer legs than many of the other titles currently in the charts. Assassin's Creed Odyssey launches in second place with a weaker launch than last year's entry, but as GamesIndustry points out, it's released nearly a month earlier in the year, so the comparison is a little skewed.
Elsewhere, Marvel's Spider-Man has crawled down to fourth place thanks to another new entry, the Xbox exclusive Forza Horizon 4. The lower end of the top 10 sees some interesting re-entries from games like Tekken 7 and Project CARS 2, which climb to 7th and 9th respectively.
It's less good news for the stellar PlayStation VR title, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, however. The lovable VR platformer debuts at number 22 -- hopefully it'll see a boost in the run up to the festive season.
