Super Mario 3D World battles Spider-Man for UK no. 1 – Games charts 27 February


Now three weeks at number one (pic: Nintendo)

Increased stock of the PS5 has had a marked effect on the UK sales charts, with Spider-Man: Miles Morales only just missing out on the top spot.

Despite two notable new releases the most significant chart movement this week came from Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which saw a 172% increases thanks to the PlayStation 5 console being more widely available.

Demon’s Souls saw a similar 123% increase, jumping back into the top 40 at number 21. The Last Of Us Part 2’s sudden reappearance wasn’t hurt by the PlayStation 5’s stock situation but it’s primarily down to retailer discounts reducing its price to under £20.

As a result, the highest new entry of the week was Persona 5 Strikers at number five, with PlayStation 4 sales accounting for 72% of the total. Meanwhile, Bravely Default 2 just missed out on the top 10 at number 11.
