Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was the UK’s best-selling game by a country mile in June, more than doubling the tally registered by second-place title, Tekken 7. The remake was on sale for just two days. This follows reports that the Activision published package stole the biggest single format debut of the year from Horizon: Zero Dawn – a noteworthy feat given how strongly Guerrilla Games’ role-playing title fared.

Sadly, the success of the title is overshadowed by the fact that it would have been a dismal month for the British games industry without it. The ‘coot helped push physical game revenue up by four per cent year-over-year, but it would have been a poor June otherwise. Nevertheless, the PS4 accounted for 55 per cent of software sales, compared to 28.4 per cent on Xbox One and just 5.7 per cent on Nintendo Switch – a reminder perhaps that it’s still very early days for the House of Mario’s new hardware.

We’ve included the Top 20 best-selling titles in Britain for June 2017 below:
