The weekly UK retail video game sales chart for last week is in and we’ve got a couple new games in the charts.
At retail over 350,000 games were sold last week in the UK which is an increase on the prior week. This could be seen as surprising given how many retailers have closed due to COVID-19.
Of course some big new releases came out last week and among them was Capcom’s Resident Evil 3 remake. This latest remake didn’t perform as well as Resident Evil 2 did in 2019 with Resident Evil 3 selling fewer than half of what that game did. Digital downloads aren’t factored into this so we don’t know the full picture. The other big new release last week was Persona 5 Royal on the PlayStation 4 which made it to No.5 in the chart.
You can see the full top ten for the week below.
