Anthem still takes the top position again in the UK charts this week.
Even with the game’s useless day one patch and bricking PS4s, Anthem still dominates the list of best-selling games in the UK. However, it seems like Anthem’s sales are definitely slowing down. Reports say that sales have dropped off by nearly 71% during the second week of the game’s history. Still, it topped charts and beat out Far Cry New Dawn from Ubisoft and even FIFA 19, both of which are right below Anthem.
Other notable games are The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame following the others. Dirt Rally 2.0 also made the list with Trials Rising: Gold Edition making the top 10 cut-off. DoA 6 was disappointing with a position at 21 and Koei Tecmo wasn’t too happy with this. Seems like players are focusing on actual gameplay more than eye candy this week- at least in the UK.
Here’s the top 10 list for UK game sales this week, with Anthem still at position 1:

Freelance journalist and part-time gamer.
I specialize in indie games as I think they don’t get the attention they deserve. I’m just your typical consumer who has some opinions to share. I’ve been reviewing games since I was 12. I started out reviewing them with friends on old forums that now no longer exist. Then I went to online VoDs, which I’ve lost interest in.
And now I’m here to deliver my thoughts in written format!
