The PlayStation 4 proved the most popular console for the new releases last week, accounting for 68 per cent of Madden 19 sales, and 67 per cent of We Happy Few sales.

While Overcooked! 2 also performed best on the PS4 -- which accounted for 42 per cent of its sales -- the Switch was the second-best performing platform with 41 per cent.
