Playstation 5 exclusive Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart back to the top
The PlayStation 5 exclusive title Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart jumps back onto the top of UK boxed charts following an 187% jump in sales after the PlayStation 5 was back in the stock.
It’s not the first time that Ratchet & Clank was spotted on the No.1 spot. Though, the surge spike in sales was followed by the arrival of new PlayStation 5 stocks, while the game also featured along with the console bundles along with a few other titles that got out for PlayStation 5.
Ratchet & Clank for Playstation 5 tops charts again
Another game to be features along with Ratchet & Clank was Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, on the Playstation 5. The popular open world title witnessed an increase by 77% in sales and climbed unto the No.8 spot in the UK boxed charts.
Some new titles were also released this week, one of them being the highest charting game, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. It’s a Nintendo Switch spin-off of the Monster Hunter series that was released back in September 2017.
Playstation 5 Sales performance unsatisfactory
Though the performance on the PlayStation 5 isn’t on par. Monster Hunter Rise, that came out in March as a Nintendo Switch exclusive, had a far better performance, but the boxed launch sales of it are more than double of its predecessor.
- The other new releases this week include Oddworld: Soulstorm, which hit the 10th spot on its debut with 52% sales on PlayStation 4 and 48% on PlayStation 5.
- Last week’s No.1 Mario Golf: Super Rush was dropped to 4th spot this week after a 42% sales drop.
- Though FIFA 21 is constant at No. 2 despite a 10% drop in sales, but it was a trending title due to the ongoing European Championships which came to an end last night.
