Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy is still No.1 in the UK

And the summer drought continues

For UK games retail, we are at the height of the summer drought - with no Amazon Prime Day to lift the market this week.

That means yes, for a fifth week, Crash Bandicoot is No.1. The game returned to the top a year after its initial PS4 release due to new versions for Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

LEGO The Incredibles is No.2 for a third consecutive week, while The Crew 2 continues to stage a small comeback, rising up five places with a 34% improvement in sales. GTA V also returns to the Top Ten, jumping 11 places to No.7. The game often performs well after a boost in console sales, which occurred during Amazon Prime Day.

A major expansion to No Man's Sky sees that game also return to the Top 50 at No.12.

There were a few smaller new releases, namely Train Sim World by Maximum Games (No.20), Go Vacation on Switch by Nintendo/Bandai Namco (No.23), The Persistence by Sony for PS4 (No.34) and Nintendo's Wario Ware Gold on 3DS (No.38).

August is a generally weak month for new game launches, although there are a couple to keep an eye on - such as Team17's Overcooked 2, Sega's Shenmue 1 and 2, Codemasters' F1 2018 and Rebellion's Strange Brigade. September is when the market will pick up significantly, with game launches such as Spider-Man, Tomb Raider, Spyro and FIFA.

Here is the UKIE/GfK physical chart for the week ending July 28th:
