UK Charts: Black Friday Deals Boost Sales Across The Board, But Rivals Outperform Nintendo

With Black Friday sales dominating the retail space last week, it's unsurprising to learn that the charts have seen a bit of change around this time. Discounted games and those found tucked in console bundles saw huge leaps across the board as consumers spent £ 53 million in total on physical gaming products.

FIFA 19 has jumped right back into the UK for a lot of discounts and included inside an appealing PS4 bundle deal. With Nintendo Switch still being a relatively new console, discounts were nowhere near as frequently as other machines, pushing multiple PS4 and Xbox One titles.

Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! fell four places down to eightth (the Eevee version dropped a little further to 18th), but Nintendo's evergreen titles did indeed look a very decent rise in sales, even if it did not result in high chart positioning. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe rose 98% in sales; Super Mario Party rose by 110%, sitting in 24th; Super Mario Odyssey is just below in 25th, also seeing sales rise by 110%; and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild rose by 111%, clinching 38th spot.

Here's a look at this week's top ten all formats chart (physical sales only):

1. (5) FIFA 19
2. (7) Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
3. (2) Red Dead Redemption 2
4. (New) Battlefield V
5. (11) Forza Horizon 4
6. (13) Spider-Man
7. (3) Fallout 76
8. (4) Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!
9. (1) Spyro Reignited Trilogy
10. (9) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
