PS5 gets first UK number one with Spider-Man: Miles Morales


Number one at last (pic: Sony)

Increased stock of the PS5 means increased sales for its games, as Spider-Man: Miles Morales swings all the way to number one.

For the first time since the console launched in November a PlayStation 5 game is at number one in the UK sales charts, as sales of Spider-Man: Miles Morales increase 36% on the previous week.

The game’s chart position has always been directly related to the amount of PlayStation 5 consoles in stock, as new owners pick up the game at the same time, with 90% of sales going to the PlayStation 5 version and only 10% to the PlayStation 4.

As the most high-profile exclusive for the PlayStation 5 the game’s success makes perfect sense but other more surprising beneficiaries of the increased console stock are Immortals Fenyx Rising and Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate – both of which saw significant increases in sales for their PlayStation 5 editions.
