Black Friday, which lasts basically the whole of November if you ask retailers, has once again had an impact on the UK's physical games charts. While not as successful as last year — GamesIndustry.biz notes a 10 per cent decline in sales compared to the same weekend in 2020 — there are still a handful of games bouncing up the chart thanks to discounts.
While Nintendo has unsurprisingly cleaned up here, some multiplatform games on PlayStation 5 and PS4 reap the benefits too. FIFA 22 is back up in second place, and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy moves from 17th all the way to fifth place. Far Cry 6 has also reportedly had a sales surge of 49 per cent week-on-week, although it's down one position, now in ninth. Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Vanguard remains in fourth, Just Dance 2022 shuffles up to number seven, and Battlefield 2042 moves from third to 12th.
Here's the latest top 10 in full.
