We have just had Black Friday which saw a number of video games discounted across all-formats in the United Kingdom. The game which came away with the most sales during the sales period was Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which shot to No.1 on account of boxed-software discounts and the Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe console bundle. Last week, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond was No.1 and this week it dropped five places to No.6 after a 57% drop in sales week-on-week. Pokemon Shining Pearl also dropped from No.2 to No.11 after a 58% tumble in sales. Here’s the GfK UK Boxed Top Ten for the week ending 27th November.
