UK Charts: Phenomenal Spider-Man sales continue

Tomb Raider holds No.2

It's the week before FIFA, and therefore the quiet before the inevitable retail storm.

It means that Spider-Man is free to retain its place at the top of the UK Boxed Charts, despite a 57% dip in sales week-on-week.

The PS4 exclusive has already surpassed the total sell-through of God of War (physical sales only) and is now a week or two away from eclipsing the multi-format Far Cry 5 as the biggest release of the year. Although, of course, FIFA 19 will claim that prize come Friday.

It is pretty much unchanged at the top with Shadow of the Tomb Raider retaining its No.2 spot with a 52% dip in sales week-on-week, which is a solid performance for a second week on sale. Tomb Raider hasn't lit up the charts, but the second week sell-through suggests it may still find a sizeable audience once the Christmas sales period is over.

Meanwhile, with Spyro jumping out of September and into November, it gives sister product Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy even more opportunity to sell and sell and sell. The Activision Blizzard game rose up a place in the charts to No.3. The game has now been in the charts or 65 weeks.

Here is the UKIE/GFK top ten for the week ending September 22nd, 2018:
