Looking at the older Switz charts it seems like Nintendo is doing great there, were they always strong there?
Yup as expected, going by the title, Crash sold the best on Xbox One?
The Activision game rose 21 places on the back of its release for PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. This week the Xbox One version was the best-selling version, but only just - it beat the Switch edition by 250 copies. The Crash remake - which includes visually improved versions of the first three games in the franchise - was a surprise success when it arrived on PS4 last year. The UK physical sales alone totalled more than half a million copies.
The game's improved performance means that the big new entry this week had to be satisfied with second place. The Crew 2 by Ubisoft has so far failed to impress the critics, and the game's launch sales are less than 25% of what the original game achieved back in December 2014.
The arrival of new Crash versions and The Crew 2 - plus continued steady sales of FIFA 18 during the World Cup - means that Mario Tennis Aces tumbles from No.1 to No.4. The game's sales dropped by 53%, which is a decent performance for a game in its second week on shelves.
Based on core console demographics, I'm actually shocked the XBO version outsold Switch based on physical sales alone - I expected it might be the case if digital sales were included though.
Oh yes, i forgot about the EU chart.
Digital is potentially a good chunk higher on Xbox, though.
