PlayStation 4's VR title Blood & Truth has apparently become the first VR game to hit number one in UK's physical sales chart, while the last week's winner Sonic Team Racing took a tumble to third place after a 46 per cent dip in sales.

It's been a tight race at the top though, and FIFA 19 gave Blood & Truth a run for its money. In fact, only 400 copies separate the two, with the Champions League finals presumably boosting FIFA 19 sales over the weekend.

This is the second game by Sony's London Studios, the same studio that made PlayStation VR Worlds - a collection of VR games that comes bundled with the PSVR headset.

Football mania over the weekend ensured that Team Sonic Racing's 46 per cent drop, which is actually a pretty good result for the second week on the shelves, doesn't end in second but in third place.

Nevertheless, Sonic is said to be beating the original by a healthy margin, which is great news for Sega.

Days Gone continues to put in good shifts and although it dropped by two places SIE Bend's game has been getting retroactive review score increases, as many initial reviews were corrected to reflect the second part of the game. 

By now, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a mainstay in the top 10 chart, and it's followed by the second and last newcomer to the last week's chart - Cricket 19: Official Game of The Ashes, whose popularity on PlayStation 4 played a huge role in the result.

The remainder of the chart is a reshuffled version of last week's, with Mortal Kombat 11 dropping a few spots before resting in tenth place.
