First week sales for Lara Croft’s latest adventure were 25 percent higher than Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Though sales dropped by 42 percent from its first week, Insomniac’s Spider-Man continues to sell incredibly well in the UK per the latest Gfk Chart-Track data. You’ll recall that the open world title based on the beloved Marvel property became the fastest selling title in the region when it debuted on September 7th for PS4.
What’s interesting is how well Spider-Man is performing despite both Shadow of the Tomb Raider and NBA 2K19 recently releasing. As per GamesIndustry.biz, Shadow of the Tomb Raider physical sales are down 70 percent compared to Tomb Raider (2013). However, overall sales are 25 percent higher than Rise of the Tomb Raider, perhaps in part due to the multi-platform release this time around.
NBA 2K19 saw roughly similar sales to NBA 2K18, with the majority of sales (65 percent) happening on PS4. Xbox One saw 33 percent of sales, while Nintendo Switch accounted for just 2 percent. The remainder of the top ten for the week included Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Grand Theft Auto 5, F1 2019, The Elder Scrolls Online, LEGO The Incredibles, and Super Mario Odyssey.
