It’s all change at the top of the UK video game chart

The UK video game chart gets a welcome shakeup due to the PlayStation Days of Play promotion.



FIFA 19 UK video game chart

The UK video game chart gets a welcome shakeup due, in part, to the PlayStation Days of Play promotion.

The launch of the PlayStation Days of Play campaign sees four PS4 exclusives in the UK top ten, plus a return to No.1 for the heavily discounted FIFA 19.

Marvel’s Spider-Man also benefits, swinging up the chart from No.15 to No.3. PlayStation VR Worlds puts in an even more impressive performance, re-entering the top 40 in tenth place. Zombie runaround, Days Gone, and last week’s No.1, Blood & Truth, also continue their residence in the upper reaches of the chart.


Other PlayStation 4 games to get a boost include the inventive Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Wipeout: Omega Collection, and Doom VFR.

Further down the chart we have that rarest of things, a new entry for a Nintendo 3DS game. Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth debuts at a creditable No. 18.

Here’s this week’s Top Ten.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
