FIFA 19 Unseats Spider-Man in Top Spot on UK Sales Chart

Despite more strong sales from Marvel's Spider-Man, it wasn't enough to hold off the debut of FIFA 19 last week in the UK.

We have a new game taking the top spot of the UK sales chart for the 39th week of 2018 and it’s associated with that of the world’s most popular sport.

FIFA 19 released last week and debuted in the top spot on last week’s UK sales chart. This ends Marvel’s Spider-Man’s streak of holding the number one position since it released in early September. Despite this drop off though Marvel’s Spider-Man still finished in second place and has now sold enough copies to become the second best-selling game of the year surpassing that of Far Cry 5. Pretty crazy to see Spidey already pass FC5’s yearlong sales within less than a month, especially since it is only on one platform.

As for the rest of the pack this week, Shadow of the Tomb Raider once again finished in Spider-Man’s shadow and came in at third with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Grand Theft Auto V rounding out this week’s top five.

The full top-40 list per usual can be found below.
