UPDATE: The figures reported in this report were based on originally incomplete data. An updated sales chart has been issued- you can take a look through here.
Gfk Chart-Track has released the data for video game software sales in the UK for the week ending January 12, and the enhanced Nintendo Switch port New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe has debuted on top of the charts in what GamesIndustry reports has been a relatively quiet week. FIFA 19, which was on top of the charts last week, has dropped down to second place as a result, while Red Dead Redemption is pushed down to number 3. Both games saw a drop in sales, as is often the case in January, which is traditionally a quieter month for video game sales- FIFA 19 sales dropped by 52 per cent week on week, and Red Dead Redemption 2 sales dropped by 53 per cent.
Red Dead Redemption 2 isn’t the only Rockstar game in the top 10. The perennially successful Grand Theft Auto 5 has also re-entered the charts, placed at the eighth position. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is in at number 4, while Switch exclusives Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe follow behind in the fifth and sixth positions respectively.
Battlefield 5 has dropped down two places to seventh, while Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy comes in at number 9. Forza Horizon 4 rounds off the top 10. You can check out the full top 10 below- as reported last week, Gkf Chart-Track will begin compiling physical and digital sales data soon, but that is not the case for now, and these sales reflect only physical software sales.
