A new wave of PS5 stock last week lent significant sales boosts to Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7 in the UK. A 163 per cent increase in boxed purchases pushed the Polyphony Digital racer up the grid into second, and Horizon Forbidden West climbed up into third. Neither could topple LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, however, which stays in the top spot for a second week.
PS5 console availability also helped sales of other evergreen titles like Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. The former was up into 15th after its physical sales increased by 302 per cent while the latter reached 17th. Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut then moved up into 30th, and even Ghostwire: Tokyo benefited in 21st.
Elsewhere, the physical version of Grand Theft Auto V on PS5 launched last week, which saw the game re-enter the top 10 in ninth place. Elden Ring slips to eighth, FIFA 22 drops a spot to fourth, and the rest of the frontrunners are taken up by Nintendo Switch titles.
Here's the latest top 10 in full, which is based purely on physical game sales in the UK.
