UK sales charts: Horizon Forbidden West tops again thanks to PS5 bundle

Horizon Forbidden West recorded its second consecutive week at the top of the UK physical sales chart, meaning it has spent three of the past four weeks in the region’s main slot. Interestingly, the PS5, PS4 sequel actually sold 35% better last week compared to the previous seven-day period, which means sales are up at the moment.

The high positioning of the game is aided by Stock PS5 in the UK, the digital code found in the Horizon Forbidden West pack counts towards physical sales charts. In the past three months, half of all PS5 consoles sold in the UK have been the official Horizon Forbidden West bundle. With the heavyweights of the holiday season still a long way off, it looks like the Guerrilla Games sequel could spend a little more time in the top 10.

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