The end of August was a busy time for the games industry, with titles like Astral Chain, Blair Witch, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan, Control, and more releasing, but it seems that this past week has been a low one in terms of sales, as reported by GamesIndustry.biz.
NBA 2K20 topped the charts this week, and despite debuting three places above last year's entry, sales are around a third lower than 2K19. It sits just above Spyro's Reignited Trilogy, which enters the charts again after 92% of sales came from the new Switch version, although this is under 10% of what it managed on PS4 alone during release last year.
Last week's number one Astral Chain also suffers a 83% dip in sales, falling to number 11, with Wreckfest falling 70% to 10, and Control diving 76% to 14. Man of Medan, however, is still at number three despite a 53% decline.
Catherine: Full Body is at number nine as a new entry, along with Monster Hunter World's Iceborne expansion at 20, and for the full top 10 you can look down below.
