It'll come as no surprise that this past week's boxed UK charts were dominated by the new releases of Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time and Star Wars: Squadrons, which took first and second place respectively.
Behind the scenes however, Crash 4's physical launch sales were down 80% compared to 2017's N. Sane Trilogy, with just 18% of sales for the game coming on Xbox One, while Star Wars: Squadrons was also down 72% on last year's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (although admittedly those two games are widely different in genre).
Elsewhere, it was generally business as usual with Mafia: Definitive Edition and Mafia: Trilogy naturally dropping to the lower end of the top ten, but for the first time in a while, there was no place for GTA V. Shocker!
Here's a look at the top ten all formats chart for the week ending October 5th:
|Last Week||This Week||Game|
Super Mario 3D All-Stars
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
Minecraft (Nintendo Switch)

Did you pick up any of these games for Xbox One last week? Let us know in the comments.
Why don’t you post the US charts as well?
82% of copies sold were on ps4 aswell, are xbox players just not that interested in crash anymore?
Also didn't the n sane trilogy cone out on switch aswell which would of helped its numbers
@Valhalla91 The ps4 market share in the UK is huge compared to the xbox one so that's why you have a low percentage of people buying it
@Valhalla91 I almost bought it, but figured I should wait for a sale given how frequently the other Crash/Spyro games are discounted. I think XBox fans are just more frugal maybe
