Spider-Man Has Been Selling Pretty Well So Far
Spider-Man debuted at the top spot on the UK sales chart after it launched on September 7th and for the second time this month it landed at #1. Also, the recently released Shadow of the Tomb Raider made its debut at second on the sales chart.
However, Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s first week physical sales pale in comparison to the first week physical sales of the 2013 reboot, Tomb Raider. According to GamesIndustryBiz, Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s first week physical sales are more than 70% less than those of the first reboot game.
But it should be noted that the sales chart that we’re citing doesn’t track digital sales (only physical ones) and that the digital purchasing of games is more prevalent now than it was in 2013.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s first week physical sales are also 25% higher than those of its 2015 predecessor, Rise of the Tomb Raider, but that game launched as an Xbox One exclusive while Shadow of the Tomb Raider launched on the PC, Xbox One, & PS4.
Here’s the whole top 10 list:
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider
- NBA 2K19
- Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- GTA V
- F1 2018
- The Elder Scrolls Online
- LEGO The Incredibles
- Super Mario Odyssey
