Spider-Man: Miles Morales swing back to the top of the UK video games chart.

The latest chart of physical game sales in the UK sees a resurgence of two blockbuster PlayStation titles. Spider-Man: Miles Morales and The Last of Us: Part 2 return to the upper reaches of the Top Ten – at No.1 and No.3 respectively – following new PlayStation 5 console stock and retailer discounts.

Experiment 101’s Biomutant – which was released to a mixed critical response – debuts impressively at No.2. Last week’s second-place debutante, the Nintendo Switch exclusive Miitopia, falls to ninth.


Elsewhere in the Top Ten, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is at No.5, a climb of 11 places and Animal Crossing: New Horizons holds relatively steady at No.6. Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster enters the chart at No.13.

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.
