Skate 3 returns to top three ten years after release | UK Digital Charts

But FIFA 21 remains at the top

It was a quiet week for digital releases in the UK last week, which has seen some surprising games re-enter the charts.

The biggest surprise is Skate 3, the cult favourite skateboarding game that launched over ten years ago. The Xbox 360 version of the game saw a jump in sales due to a sale on Xbox Live, which took the game down to just £3.74.

Other games that re-enter the charts due to discounting includes the PC version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider (No.5), which is sold as part of a bundle with Rise of the Tomb Raider (No.10). Meanwhile, the PSN Halloween sale has caused Days Gone to re-enter the Top Ten at No.6.

Of course, the real champion of the week remains FIFA 21, which holds its No.1 position in the digital chart for a third consecutive week, just like it did in the physical chart. The game's weekly digital sales fell 40% week-on-week.

For the second week in a row, the physical version of FIFA 21 sold better than the digital version, although overall the game's sales have been primarily digital (by a large margin) following an impressive first week.
