F1 2018 And Shenmue Dethrones Crash Bandicoot From Top Of UK Sales Chart

Crash Bandicoot's insane 8-week streak on top of the UK Sales chart finally came to an end after having been dethroned by Codemaster's F1 2018 and Shenmue 1 and 2 taking over both the number 1 and number 2 spot respectively. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy was on its way to equal the 9-week streak held by Call of Duty WWII last year before the takeover. Though the wacky marsupial is not that far behind as it settles on to the third spot in the list.
