Resident Evil Village expected to top the fresh British retail charts, marking the second largest release in the region for 2021 – ahead of only Super Mario 3D World + Bowser Fury. The eighth part of the famous horror performed especially well on PlayStation consoles – they accounted for 80% of the circulation (49% for the PS5 and 31% for the PS4), while Xbox systems were divided among themselves the remaining 20%. The launch run of RE Village on the PS5 was third — only “Spider-Man: Miles Morales” and Assassins Creed Valhalla showed themselves better at the launch.
Moreover, in the first days of sales, the novelty has already managed to become the seventh edition on the console. However, the start is difficult to call a success against the background of previous major releases: sales are 25% below the results of the remake of Resident Evil 2 and 40% below the figures of Resident Evil 7 — however the eighth performed 76% better than last years Resident Evil 3 remake.
Analysts suggest that growth in digital distribution should at a minimum offset a decline in interest in retail copies. But Returnal for a week lost 84% of copies and dropped to the 15th place.
