Gfk Chart-Track’s latest UK sales charts for the week ending September 29th are now available. To no one’s surprise, EA’s FIFA 19 has debuted in first place, and has already become the biggest title in the UK for this year. What is surprising is how first week physical sales are down 25 percent compared to FIFA 18 from last year.

The possible explanation is that more consumers have shifted to digital downloads more than expected. Digital sales are not counted in Gfk’s estimates. Then again, it’s also just likely that FIFA 19 sold worse than FIFA 18. In terms of sales breakup per platform, the PS4 version made up 64 percent of sales. Xbox One took up 35 percent, while the Nintendo Switch version accounted for 1 percent.

Insomniac’s Spider-Man has dropped to second place, but it’s already surpassed Far Cry 5 as the second best-selling title of the year. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is also doing fairly well. Though it started slow in its first week, sales are looking decent as the title drops slightly to third place.

Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy fell slightly to fourth place, followed by Grand Theft Auto 5, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Elder Scrolls Online, and NBA 2K18. Other notable new releases for this week included Valkyria Chronicles 4. It debuted at ninth place, with 54 percent of sales for the PS4 version. The Nintendo Switch followed up with 39 percent of sales while Xbox One accounted for 7 percent. Minecraft: Xbox One Edition rounded out the charts at tenth place.
