In last week’s charts for physical video game sales in the UK, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla debuted in first place, with the game having enjoyed a massive launch worldwide. This week, the open world RPG has fallen to No. 4, and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (which itself also released to a strong launch) has moved up to No. 1- despite a 27% week-on-week drop in boxed sales (via GamesIndustry).

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales holds on to the third spot. It is, in fact, the best-selling game in the PS5 launch lineup, to no one’s surprise. Other PS5 exclusive launch titles like Demon’s Souls (No. 4), Sackboy: A Big Adventure (No. 5), and Godfall (No. 7) also figure in the PS5-specific top 10- though of these, Spider-Man is the only one to make it into the overall top 10 for the week. Miles Morales’ physical launch sales are down 57% from those of Marvel’s Spider-Man when it came out for the PS4 in 2018.

In the overall charts, FIFA 21 is in second place. Thanks to Black Friday discounts, the game saw a massive surge in sales, with a 121% week-on-week boost. Meanwhile, the recently released Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity debuts in 6th place, with physical sales 324% higher than 2018’s Switch release of Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, but 43% lower than last year’s remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (which makes sense, since Hyrule Warriors isn’t a traditional mainline Zelda release).
