UK Sales Charts: Horizon Forbidden West on Top Again Due to PS5 Bundle

5


Horizon Forbidden West has recorded its second week in a row at the top of the physical UK sales chart, meaning it has spent three of the last four weeks in the region’s prime slot. Interestingly, the PS5, PS4 sequel actually sold 35 per cent better last week compared to the seven-day stretch before, meaning sales are up at the moment.

The game’s high positioning is helped by healthy PS5 Stock in the UK, with the digital code found inside the Horizon Forbidden West bundle counting towards physical sales charts. Over the past three months, half of all PS5 consoles sold in the UK have been the official Horizon Forbidden West bundle. With the heavy hitters of the holiday season still quite a ways out, it looks like the Guerrilla Games follow-up could spend quite a bit longer in the top 10.

One new entry for last week was Two Point Campus, which debuted in second place. The game sold best on Nintendo Switch, with just 19 per cent of sales being for the PS5 version, and then 12 per cent for the PS4 version. Gran Turismo 7 retains its track position in fifth, and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga slips to sixth. Nintendo Switch exclusives make up most of the other top 10 places.

Here’s the latest top 10 in full.
