The Gkf has released the data for physical game sales in the UK over the last week, and the top of the charts has seen some predictable changes (via GamesIndustry). FIFA is always the biggest game in the region every year, and new release FIFA 22 has debuted on top of the charts as well. Though its physical launch sales are down 35% over last year’s game (which in turn were down 42% over FIFA 20), though digital sales for the series have been growing every year, and have grown 31% for FIFA 22 as well.

41% of its sales came on the PS4, followed by 27% on the Xbox One, and 23% on the PS5. Surprisingly, the Nintendo Switch version – which is another Legacy Edition – sold more than the Xbox Series X in terms of physical sales, with the former making up 5% of the sales and the latter 4%. 

Another new entry in the charts is Sonic Colors Ultimate, which finally saw its physical European release following a delay. The remaster takes the No. 3 spot, with 53% sales coming from the Nintendo Switch, 32% from PS4, and 15% on Xbox One. At No. 4 is Hot Wheels Unleashed, with a solid debut that saw 39% sales on the PS5, 27% on the Switch, 14% on the PS4, 11% on Xbox One, and 8% on Xbox Series X/S.
