Nintendo Switch Sports No. #1 as PS5 shares soar – gaming charts on May 7

It’s set to be a summertime game (Image: Nintendo)

PS5 console stock is starting to become more readily available but there is still a bit of a move in the UK retail charts.

With no major new retail releases until at least the end of the month, UK sales charts are stuck in place, with family friendly Nintendo Switch Sports and Lego Star Wars are still on top.

A physical release of the indie title Sifu is the only new entry in the top ten but there’s also been a lot of movement from the PlayStation 5’s console inventory build, with Horizon Forbidden West rising to third place.

April was the biggest month of the year so far for PlayStation 5 sales, after several months of low inventory, although still 51% down from last year, since Sony prioritized getting more for Christmas.
