The Force remains strong with Lego Star Wars, as new stock of PS5 consoles sees Gran Turismo 7 and Horizon Forbidden West rise up the charts.

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is already confirmed as the fastest selling Lego title ever, so it’s no surprise to find it still at the top of the UK retail charts. Although the Nintendo Switch version is now the fastest-selling version, in the game’s second week.

This week’s top 40 has seen almost all first party PlayStation 5 games jump up the chart because of increased availability of the console, although this time it’s Gran Turismo 7 and Horizon Forbidden West which have benefitted the most, rather than Spider-Man: Miles Morales (which re-enters the charts at number 15).

Technically, there is a new release this week, in the form of the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 versions of Grand Theft Auto 5, although most of their sales are digital and they’ve made only a minor impact on the retail chart.
