UK charts: Sony's Days of Play sale means no change at the top

FIFA 19 is still No.1, followed by Days Gone and Spider-Man

The power of price promotions continues to shape the retail charts as PlayStation titles dominate the Top Ten.

Sony's Days of Play sale kicked off before E3, cutting the price on key first and third party sales, as well as hardware bundles. As a result FIFA 19 rose back to No.1 for the first time since January.

With the promotion running throughout the last week, FIFA 19 remains at the top of the charts, thanks in part to its inclusion in discounted PS4 hardware bundles. The footy title even saw a 53% boost in sales week-on-week, have already rose by 18% the previous week.

Meanwhile, Days Gone holds on to No.2 with a 35% lift in sales, while a 45% rise keeps Marvel's Spider-Man at No.3.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, PlayStation VR Worlds rose from No.10 to No.7 with a 56% sales boost, while a 8% dip in sales sees Blood & Truth drop to five places to replace it.

The highest placing non-PlayStation title is Forza Horizon 4, a re-entry into the Top 10 with an 88% rise in sales. This was no doubt driven by the release of the Lego Speed Champions expansion announced at Xbox's E3 press conference.

Other re-entries this week include Battlefield 6 at No.6 (sales up 65%), and Anthem at No.8 (up 81%). There were no new entries in the Top 40.
