Another big batch of PS5 Stock must have hit UK shores last week because the island's physical sales chart is suddenly dominated by titles available on the new system. Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut debuts in first place, and Insomniac Games duo Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales take second and third respectively.
The enhanced PS5 re-release from Sucker Punch sold 91 per cent of its boxed copies on Sony's latest system, while the Lombax squad enjoyed a 105 per cent boost to physical sales. Miles Morales needed a 92 per cent purchasing increase for the web-slinger to claim bronze on the podium.
Another new release was Madden NFL 22, which entered the chart in 19th place. Sales dipped by 47 per cent compared to last year's launch week, but 81 per cent of purchases were for the PS5, PS4 versions (49 per cent on PS5, 32 per cent on PS4). Hades slipped all the way down to 23rd during its second week of availability, Marvel's Avengers rose to 11th thanks to its new Black Panther expansion, and Grand Theft Auto V held firm in sixth.
