Black Friday shoots FIFA 21 back to UK no. 1 – Games charts 28 November

There are no new entries in the new UK top 10 and with sales down 20%, Black Friday has had less impact than usual.

Thanks to widespread discounts on Black Friday, the UK number one is once again FIFA 21 – although the infamous retail event saw overall physical sales drop by 20% on last year.

Given many retailers started deals earlier than last year, and there were almost no console bundles for Xbox or PlayStation, a direct comparison is not really possible – especially given that most high street shops were shut because of the coronavirus.

Even so, more than 1 million boxed games were sold last week, 38% of which were Nintendo Switch titles. That represents a 9% increase over last year, despite a lack of any big name new releases this autumn.
