Bethesda Game Studios’ Starfield launched worldwide last week and has already topped the UK physical sales charts, per Gfk. However, as revealed in the full charts (via GamesIndustry), the sci-fi RPG has sold more copies on Xbox Series X/S than PC.
Digital sales are coming later, but physical sales are out-performing Hogwarts Legacy and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The popularity of its Premium Upgrade has dropped, with sales falling by 71 percent, bringing it from seventh to 34th place. It makes sense, given that consumers can now purchase the full game.
Hogwarts Legacy sales are up by four percent week-on-week thanks to a discount promotion, bringing it to second place. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is in third, but sales were down 24 percent week-on-week. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is in a rare sixth place due to sales dropping by 23 percent.
As for new titles, NBA 2K24 debuted at seventh while Fae Farm arrived in ninth. 505 Games’ Crime Boss: Rockay City ranked out of the top ten at 22nd place. Check out the full Gfk top ten for the week ending September 9th below.
