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.

See the top 10 below:

Animal Crossing New Horizons secures No.1 spot for third time consecutively in UK Charts

Nintendo will be happy as the momentum for Animal Cross New Horizons is still going strong and no signs of letting up. Nintendo have dominated the boxed sales this week, though they have seen some decline in percentages per title. Obviously, do take into consideration that some of the Switch games that are in the top 10 have been on sale via the eShop. The figure combined with physical would be more and would be interesting to find out. Of course we have new games incoming soon as we have reached the halfway point in January already.

February and March are looking good months for Nintendo once again. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury Feb 12th, Persona 5 Strikers for Switch and PS4 in Feb and Bravely Default 2 in Feb, and lastly Monster Hunter Rise for Switch in March.

PlayStation do have new IP Returnal coming in March. Will that prove to be a hit? It looks rather interesting as it has the Alien vibe going for me personally.
