Hitman 3 claims the No.1 in UK Charts

IO Interactive will be pretty chuffed of claiming the No.1 spot in the UK gaming charts.

Hitman 3 released on the 20th of September and the PS5 version accounted for nearly half the sales. Hitman 3 sales were also 17% more than its predecessor.

Referring back to the console sale percentages. PS5 is at 49%, Xbox 27% and the PS4 at 25%. Its rather clear what platform of choice people have picked Hitman 3 up on.

Animal Crossing New Horizons is in 2nd, which it was pretty much dominating the UK charts for the last few weeks. However, over 800 copies were the difference.
