Marvel’s Spider-Man Holds Top Spot in UK Sales While Tomb Raider Debuts at Second

Spidey holds off Lara Croft in last week's battle atop the UK sales chart.

After an incredibly strong debut on the charts last week, Marvel’s Spider-Man has once again taken the top spot for the 37th week of the year on the UK sales chart.

This comes as no surprise as Marvel’s Spider-Man was expected by many to be one of the year’s highest-selling games simply because of the popularity of the character and the massive install base of the PS4. It’s also just a pretty darn good game if you haven’t heard, yet.

As for other entries on the list this week, Shadow of the Tomb Raider debuted at the number two spot while NBA 2K19 made its first appearance at third. If I had to guess, NBA 2K19 likely charted higher here in the United States than that of Tomb Raider. NBA games are likely always going to do fewer numbers in other regions simply because the league is located out of the US. We’ll see if this prediction is true when we end up getting NPD numbers in the future.

Rounding out the top 5 this week was once again Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy followed by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. These are two games we see frequently appearing near the top of the list and that hasn’t changed this week.

Anyway, feel free to check out the top-40 list below as always.
