The arrival of new PS5 hardware bundles has boosted sales of its big games.
Gran Turismo 7 posted a 163% spike in sales, sending the racing game up five places to No.2. Just behind it is Horizon Forbidden West at No.3, which jumped 11 places after a 307% leap in sales.
Other PS5 games also moved up the charts, partially due to the arrival of more console stock but also Easter price promotions. Spider-Man: Miles Morales re-enters the charts at No.15 after a 302% sales spike, while Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is back in the Top 40 at No.17 after a 709% jump. Finally, Ghostwire: Tokyo returns at No.21 (sales up 210%) and Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut is at No.30 (up 464%).
At No.1 for a second consecutive week is LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. The game posted a huge launch last week (both in the boxed and digital charts), and is the fastest-selling LEGO game in UK history. This week sales dropped 70% week-on-week, but the Warner Bros game still comfortably retains its leading position.
