The Destroy All Humans! remake debuts in third place.
The UK boxed video game sales charts for the week ending August 1 are in (via GamesIndustry), and Ghost of Tsushima, which topped the charts last week, is still hanging on to that top spot, in spite of a 40 per cent drop in sales. That makes this its third consecutive week atop the UK sales charts, which is the same number of weeks fellow recent PS4 exclusive The Last of Us Part 2 – which is in eighth place here – was in first place.
In second place is Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which is not a surprise anymore. The Destroy All Humans! remake was the biggest new release this week, and in spite of the franchise having been dormant for over a decade, it’s come back strong in terms of sales, with the remake taking the third spot. It has sold 50 per cent more than the last instalment in the franchise, which was 2008’s Path of Furon.
Meanwhile, Skater XL – which had been in early access for a while – also saw its full release last week, and it, too, debuted in the top 10 in seventh place. Activision must surely by looking at this one in particular with optimism, with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 launching later this year.
