Marvel’s Spider-Man – AKA the photo mode with a game attached, if social media is to be believed – is still proving rather popular.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is still top of the UK charts, while Lara Croft’s latest adventure, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, is still holding in second place.
Insomniac’s web-slinger is going great guns worldwide, too, and has overtaken God of War’s record for the fastest-selling first-party Sony title, with over 3.3 million copies shifted in the first three days alone. It’s good news for the game which has DLC coming later in the year, and could well be the start of a trilogy or franchise based on its success.
Elsewhere in the charts, it’s littered with the usual suspects. Grand Theft Auto V, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey and the Xbox One version of PUBG maintain their foothold in the top ten – insert some platitudes about their remarkable longevity here – while two versions of Minecraft, Resident Evil VII: Biohazard, Breath of the Wild, Rainbow Six Siege, and the aforementioned God of War cling onto the bottom half of the top 20.
We’ll see you again next week, when we’ll probably list all of the same games again (plus Forza Horizon).
You can see the full UK software chart for the week ending September 24, 2018 at the GFK Chart Track website.
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.
