Crash Bandicoot Manages Five Weeks at Top of UK Charts

by Jose Belmonte


Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy continues reigning over the UK best sellers list, achieving five weeks at number 1. That is not only a new record for a PS4-only release, it’s also the longest any game has taken hold of the top position in all 2017. It also makes 10 out if 31 weeks that a PS4-only release has topped the charts this year. Crash was partly helped by the absence of new releases this week, but it has also proven to be a stable seller, just dropping its numbers 34% this week.

The phenomenal success of N. Sane Trilogy has made Activision consider remaking other classic games, with Crash Team Racing being most probably the next one, and fans begging for the Spyro trilogy to receive the same treatment.

Elsewhere in the charts, Grand Theft Auto V climbs to number 2 despite nearing the four years since its release, and a special Bethesda gave a boost to games like Dishonored 2, Doom, and Fallout 4.
