Amazon's Fallout TV show has helped the commercial performance of the franchise's two most recent entries.

Fallout 4 is still in the Top Ten at eighth, having returned to the charts last week at No.9. Meanwhile, the MMO Fallout 76 has shot up from 12th to ninth.

Valve has locked up the top three this week; Counter-Strike 2 holds the No.1 spot once more, while Dota 2 has shot up from No.31 to second place thanks to the new Crownfall update. Meanwhile, the company's Steam Deck hardware came in at No.3, rising up one place.

Helldivers 2 dropped one position to fourth, while the newly-released No Rest for the Wicked has made its debut at No.5. PUBG: Battlegrounds drops four places to sixth, charting ahead of Chinese-only MahjongSoul, which shot up from No.89 to seventh.
