Crash Bandicoot Becomes an Eight-Time Winner in UK Sales as World of Warcraft's New Expansion Debuts in Top Five

Crash Bandicoot has now surpassed last year's streak upon the weekly UK sales chart by taking home the top spot once again this week.

Well, the Bandicoot did it again. For the 33rd week of the year, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has once again taken home the top spot in the weekly UK sales chart making this the eighth consecutive week to hold such honors.

As I said last week, if Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy would be able to accomplish this task then it would eclipse the same UK sales streak that the game had last year upon releasing solely on PS4. Clearly that push to Xbox One and Switch–along with a noticeably weaker summer slate in 2018–helped push Crash over the top this year. I honestly expect Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy to retain this position until Marvel’s Spider-Man releases, but we’ll see if that holds true next week.

As for other noteworthy entries on the list this week, World of Warcraft has re-entered the chart at the number three spot thanks to the launch of the new Battle for Azeroth expansion that just came out. Even though the game is nearly fifteen years old at this point, clearly there are still a lot of dedicated WoW fans out there. As for other titles, Grand Theft Auto V rose a spot this week to slot in at number two while LEGO The Incredibles finally dropped out of second and slotted back at fifth.
