Gfk’s UK physical retail sales charts for the week are out and Insomniac’s Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is back on top. According to GamesIndustry.biz, the PS5 exclusive saw a 187 percent increase in sales, allowing it to claim the number 1 spot from Mario Golf: Super Rush. New PS5 stock, coupled with it being included in console bundles, seems to have helped.
Said bundles also benefited Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which went from 17th to eighth place in the charts with a 77 percent week-on-week increase in sales. Oddworld: Soulstorm, which recently released in the region for PS4 and PS5, may have also gained a nice boost since it debuted at tenth place (with 48 percent of sales being on PS5).
In terms of brand new entries, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin debuted in third place. Though it didn’t beat Monster Hunter Rise’s overwhelming performance, its sales are more than double that of the first game which released in September 2017 for the Nintendo 3DS. Check out the full GfK Top Ten for the week ending July 10th below.
