That Nintendo Switch and its selection of games are surely hot products right now, right? Titles that are exclusive to the system make up almost half of the latest UK sales chart, as game purchases across the country increase by 33% during lock-in. It makes PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 games feel that their sole purpose is to make up the numbers, with the best one title available on both systems being Just Dance 2021
As a result of this Nintendo dominance, FIFA 21 slips two places to fourth, while Assassin’s Creed Valhalla falls one place to fifth place. Everyone’s favorite game Grand Theft Auto V goes up to eighth and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is down to tenth – that’s literally all we have to discuss this week. Nintendo is really on top when the UK enters another phase of complete shutdown, and it does not look like any major releases will come together to shake things up for Hitman 3.
