A surge in PlayStation 5 stock this week has had a big impact on the sale of its video games.
The biggest of which is Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The most popular PS5 game rose 172% in physical boxed sales week-on-week, jumping from No.7 to No.2. The game only missed out on the top spot by a mere 1,000 units.
The other big PS5 exclusive in the charts is Demon's Souls at No.21. The game wasn't in the boxed Top 40 last week, but returns thanks to a 123% sales spike.
Overall, sales of PS5 boxed games are up 64% over the previous week.
At No.1 is the Nintendo Switch game Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, which secures its third consecutive No.1 despite a 38% drop in sales week-on-week.
There were a couple of small new releases this week. Persona 5 Strikers from Atlus debuts at No.5 on Switch and PS4 (PS4 accounting for 72% of sales). Meanwhile, Square Enix's Bravely Default 2 on Nintendo Switch makes No.11
The final big performer this week is The Last of Us: Part 2. The PS4 game returns to the charts at No.3 after a 3992% increase in sales due to a price discount that saw the horror game drop to under £20 at major retailers.
