Last week’s physical game sales were definitely a win for Sony, as the top three spots went to a trio of PlayStation exclusives — Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The news isn’t quite as good a week later, but first party titles are still hanging among the bestsellers.
A dominant performance from Aliens: Fireteam Elite puts it right at the top of the pack. Interestingly, it sold best on PS5, with 42 per cent of the share. With this new release and fluctuating availability of PS5 stock, Sony’s exclusive games have moved down the list. Miles Morales is in fifth, Ghost of Tsushima falls to ninth, and Rift Apart is now in 12th place. However, The Last of Us: Part II has reemerged to take 10th; Sony’s games are all in flux, it seems.
Elsewhere, Marvel’s Avengers returns to the top 10 in eighth, and Grand Theft Auto V is up two places in fourth. Nothing can stop it. It’s best to just accept it.
Here’s the latest top 10 in full.
