Last week was an eventful one for the weekly charts for boxed sales in the UK (via GamesIndustry). For starters, Deathloop finally launched for the PS5 and PC, receiving praise from critics, and also managing to top the UK sales charts. In spire of its No. 1 position, it’s still garnered the lowest ever physical launch sales for a game developed by Arkane Studios, slightly behind 2017’s Prey– though it’s worth noting that these charts do not account for digital sales.
There was interesting activity beyond the top of the charts as well, with PS5 restocks at UK retail leading to a surge in sales for its games as well. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, for instance, saw a 223% increase in sales over last week, jumping right up to second place, while fellow Insomniac-developed title Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, climbed back up to No. 4 thanks to a massive 30% increase in sales.
There’s also Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, which is in at No. 6 after a 233% sales boost. Meanwhile, WarioWare: Get it Together!, which debuted in first place last week, has dropped down to No. 8.
