PS5 games surge in sales
Here’s proof that not every wave of PS5 stock released by retailers is going to scalpers: the games are seeing a huge increase in sales as and when the console is made available across the United Kingdom. This latest sales chart for the island documents that as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales experiences a huge 264 per cent increase in sales, taking it up to fourth place. Demon’s Souls then outdid the web-slinger with a 401 per cent jump in physical transactions, which saw it claim 17th. Nintendo Switch titles still make up a large portion of the top 10, but it’s clear that when the PS5 can actually be bought, its games prove popular too.
The only new entry as far as PlayStation 4 games are concerned is Little Nightmares II, which scares the competition silly in seventh place. FIFA 21 jumps up five positions into third, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War slips to sixth, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is up one in ninth.
