Following a disastrous launch on PS4 and Xbox One, it’s no surprise to report that Cyberpunk 2077 has dropped from No.1 in the latest UK physical software chart. Retail sales of the game have fallen 80% according to Cyberpunk 2077 now sits at No.3, with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at No. 2, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla taking the prize of this year’s Christmas No.1.

Elsewhere, FIFA 21 moves up one place to No.4, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe holds steady at No.7, and Ring Fit Adventure re-enters the top ten, leaping from No.16 to No. 9.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
