Miles Morales keeps Biomutant from UK number one – Games charts 29 May

Spider-Man: Miles Morales has once again proven a barometer of PS5 console sales, as the game hits the number one spot for the second time.

You can always tell when there’s been a restock of the PlayStation 5 because suddenly sales of Spider-Man: Miles Morales shoot up, although last week its chart position was also helped by retail discounts for the PlayStation 4 version.

That was enough to keep Biomutant from the number one spot, but it still did surprisingly well for a new IP with middling reviews – although it’s curious that as much as 71% of sales were for the PlayStation 4 version.

Retailer discounts account for most of the other unusual activity in the charts, with The Last Of Us Part 2 selling for just £10 at some stores, but Shin Megami Tensei 3 Nocturne HD Remaster did well to debut at number 13, with 55% of sales for the Switch version.
