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.
