Continuing its dominance, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy finished in 1st place for a fifth time last week in the UK. This gives it the most weeks at #1 for a PlayStation 4-exclusive title, as well as the most weeks at #1 for any game so far this year.

GfK Chart-Track also pointed out that nearly a third of all titles to hit #1 so far this year (10 weeks out of 31 weeks) are only available on PlayStation platforms.

There weren’t any new releases last week, so Grand Theft Auto V was able to move up to 2nd, Fallout 4 and Doom moved up to 3rd and 4th thanks to some promotions, and Battlefield 1 was back in the top 10.

Here’s the top 20 best-selling games through retail stores in the UK for the week ending August 5, 2017, according to GfK Chart-Track:

  1. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (down 34%)
  2. Grand Theft Auto V (down 7%)
  3. Fallout 4 (up 27%)
  4. Doom (up 17%)
  5. Dishonored 2 (up 25%)
  6. Splatoon 2
  7. Battlefield 1 (up 55%)
  8. Miitopia
  9. FIFA 17
  10. Rainbow Six Siege
  11. DiRT 4
  12. LEGO Worlds
  13. Ghost Recon Wildlands
  14. Forza Horizon 3
  15. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  16. Horizon Zero Dawn
  17. LEGO City Undercover
  18. Minecraft: Xbox Edition
  19. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  20. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
