PlayStation 5 dominates the list

Spider-Man: Miles Morales was able to get the third position with a 223% rise in sales. It jumped from no. 13 to no 2 in one week. That’s quite an impressive jump, right? Ratchet And Clank: Rift Apart reentered the chart this time. It was able to grab the 4th position after a 650% sales spike. Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut also got a huge sales spike this week.

It jumped from no. 13 to no. 6 after a 233% sales spike. However, an interesting fact is that Ghost of Tusimas’ 95% sale was from PlayStation 5. Director’s Cut is an updated version of the original title.

This time, there are multiple new releases on the list. Arcade Racer Cruis’n Blast from Nintendo Switch was able to make it just over the line at no. 37. Last week’s top-positioned title, Mario Kart 8: Delux is now at no. 3 after a 51% sales drop. Last week no. 2 Tale of Arise is now at no. 14 after 70% sales fall. NBA 2K22 saw a 41% drop in sales, pushing it way down to no. 10.

However, Nintendo Switch games saw a minor improvement and an increase in sales thanks to the price drop. Minecraft on Switch increased 10% sales and maintained its 5th position this week as well. Well, quite shockingly, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is not a part of the 10 lists anymore as it has been kicked off completely from the top 10 list.
