Meanwhile, Watch Dogs Legion sales fell 58% in the second week.
Despite the fact that quarantine began again in England from November 5, physical sales of games in the week ending November 7 grew by 13%. Largely thanks to Nintendo – sales of its games climbed 38%, while discs for PS4 and Xbox One were sold without noticeable changes.
FIFA 21 retained its lead in the chart, which was not challenged by Watch Dogs Legion released on October 29 last week. This time, Ubisoft also lost out to Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, dropping from second to fourth in the ranking.
Physical sales of Legion dropped 58% in the second week, but, as noted in Gamesindustry.biz, the situation is better in digital terms – taking it into account, Legion was the best-selling game in the first week, beating FIFA 21.
There were no major releases last week, but some games were released. Only one of them got into the top 10 – LOL Surprise! Remix: We Rule The World, ranked tenth. But the remaster of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, released on November 6, started at # 35 on the chart.
DIRT 5, also released on November 6, started at # 38 on the charts, which can be called a rather weak result for the famous racing franchise, but the game was actively promoted as a launch title for the Xbox Series. Perhaps many players decided to just wait with the purchase.
