Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and GTA 5 are top UK downloads | UK Digital Charts

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga retains No.1 position in the UK digital charts, despite a 53% fall in sales week-on-week.

The game was No.1 the week before, too, despite a 72% sales drop (there was a delay in last week's GSD charts).

Both weeks Grand Theft Auto 5 took the second position. However, this week sales have dropped 32% week-on-week. Elden Ring is still at No.3, despite a 16% sales slide.

Overall, digital game sales in the UK dropped by 33% week-on-week.

The week before we had seen an uptick in sales of games such as WWE 2K22 and Call of Duty: Vanguard, which had benefitted from some Easter pricing activity, which has now ended.

The remaster of RPG classic Chrono Cross, which was released two weeks ago, dropped out of the Top 40 altogether after one week.

Here is the GSD UK Digital Top Ten (week ending April 24th):
