Another week of relative stasis in the European games market allowed Grand Theft Auto V to dominate the EMEAA charts for yet another week.
There was nothing to compare to the astounding 1,000 place pogo-jump made by Capcom's DuckTales: Remastered last week. Instead, Rockstar's commercial behemoth topped the combined physical and digital chart in terms of both units sold and value.
Grand Theft Auto V was also the No.1 game in the digital chart for both units and value. The only part of the market where it wasn't dominant was retail, where Activision Blizzard's Crash Team Racing Nitro Fuelled was the top title for units sold, and Nintendo's Super Mario Maker 2 was top in terms of value.
In the combined units chart, there were four re-entries into the top ten: Ubisoft's The Crew 2 climbed from No.16 to No.5, Assassin's Creed Odyssey was up from No.11 to No.6, Activision Blizzard's Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy rose from No.18 to No.8, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was up from No.20 to No.10..
