Activision Blizzard's Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has managed to extend its stay at the helm of UK physical sales charts by another week thanks to Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions, both of which launched in the past week.

By now it's pretty clear that Crash's decision to exchange the PlayStation exclusive status for green PC, Xbox One and Switch pastures was the right one, even if it is just a repackaged remaster.

Crash managed to beat the second placed Jurassic World: Evolution by mere three thousand units, although further analysis shows that the latter's developer, Frontier Developments, have every reason to consider that spot their own.

Namely, Jurassic has already launched on PC on 12 June 2018, albeit only digital, which already disqualifies it from physical sales. We're sure Frontier doesn't mind though, as excellent digital sales coupled with a second place in physical are most certainly a good sign.

At this rate, we might as well take FIFA 18 as a mainstay in the chart, this time in third place, while Ivory Tower and Ubisoft's The Crew 2 dropped two spots and sits in fourth place. The game has seen a 45 per cent drop in sales, which is expected in the second week.

You could say that Mario Tennis Aces, God of War and Mario Kart 8: Deluxe kept their place, seeing as how each of them just moved one spot downwards, courtesy of Jurassic World: Evolution.

Far Cry 5 went up two places and now sits in eight, while Star Wars Battlefront II continues its discount-fuelled rise from the dead, albeit two places lower at ninth, while Fallout 4 completes the top 10 list.

  • FIFA 18
