There are no new releases within the Top 40 All Formats (Units) this week – Milestone’s ‘Gravel’ debuts just outside at No42 but does make the revenue All Formats Top 40 at No30.
The eagle-eyed chart follower will have noticed it is time to say Happy Birthday to Nintendo’s Switch, which debuted one year ago (week 9, 2017 ‘Zelda Breath of the Wild’ debuted at No2). In terms of chart toppers this week, there’s not much change from the usual suspects plus some re-entries from ‘payday’ and assorted promotions. EA’s ‘FIFA 18’ remains at No1 for a third consecutive week and a total of 7 times on the All Formats Top 40. Rockstar/Take 2 remain at No2 with ‘GTA V’ and Activision remain at No3 with ‘Call of Duty WWII’. Nintendo’s Switch ‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’ makes a dash for the top, climbing 4 places to No4 and Capcom’s ‘Monster Hunter: World’ drops 1 place to No5. Microsoft’s ‘PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds’ for Xbox One jumps back in to the Top 10, up 7 places to No8.
