Despite some stiff competition from Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, F1 2021 topped UK physical sales charts yet again according to Gfk Chart-Track. As revealed by GamesIndustry.biz, sales for the former rose by five percent week-on-week while the latter’s dropped by 30 percent. Nevertheless, Codemasters’ latest racing sim managed to claim the top spot for the third consecutive week.
The only other noteworthy title was Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: The Official Video Game. It saw sales increase by 43 percent, no doubt due to the buzz of the real-life Olympics, putting it in third place. Sadly, the buzz didn’t help Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 which saw sales drop by 13 percent.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD saw a major dip, going from second to fifth place after sales dropped by 46 percent. NEO: The World Ends with You debuted last week in tenth place but sadly fell out of the top ten this week. Check out the Gfk top ten for the week ending August 7th 2021 below.
