UK Charts: Days Gone scores third No.1 in very quiet week for games retailSaints Row: The Third on Switch debuts at No.15Christopher DringHead of Games B2BMonday 13th May 2019Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareIt is one of the slowest weeks for boxed video game sales all year, and thus Sony’s Days Gone retains its position at the top of the UK charts.However, the gap between it and Mortal Kombat 11 in second place is narrowing. Both games were released at the same time and have held No.1 and No.2 every week since. MK11 was boosted this week by the arrival of the Switch version of the game.In fact, last week’s entire Top Six is exactly the same. But it was a close week for sales. In fact, just 12,500 units separated No.40 from No.1. The new-entry of the week comes in at No.15. Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package makes a decent debut on Nintendo Switch. Remember, these figures do not include digital sales, which account for roughly half the market.
