Shortly before the holidays, we are also supplied with the current retail charts from Great Britain at weekly intervals. While “FIFA 23” retook the top of the charts last week, “Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion” got off to a slow start.
GamesIndustry.biz and the market researchers from GfK Chart-Track once again made the software charts from Great Britain available just in time for the start of the new week.
The charts, which only consider UK retail sales, refer to the period between December 12 and 17, 2022. Electronic Arts’ football simulation “FIFA 23” managed to top the spot last week recapture the top of the UK retail charts. Compared to the previous week, the sales figures for “FIFA 23” increased by 67 percent.
Sales of the Infinity Ward shooter “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” also increased. In this case by 13 percent, which meant second place. On the other hand, sales of last week’s top seller, God of War: Ragnarök, fell 23 percent, dropping Kratos and Atreus’ new adventure to third place. Various switch titles such as “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe”, “Pokèmon Violet” or “Nintendo Switch Sports” follow in the other places.
The only notable newcomer in the form of the role-playing game remaster “Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion” entered the UK retail charts at number eight. According to GamesIndustry.biz, 70 percent of the units sold in the first week of sales were the PlayStation 5 version.
Here is an overview of the top of the last week.
UK Retail Charts: The Top 10 from 12th to 17th December 2022
1. FIFA 23
2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
3. God of War Ragnarok
4. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
5. Pokemon Purple
6. Nintendo Switch Sports
7. Pokémon Scarlet
8. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion
9. Minecraft: Switch Edition
10. Just Dance 2023
Maybe my expectations were too low, but I thought the Crisis Core Final Fantasy game did quite well at UK retail. No.8 in the charts. 70% of sales on PS5, 12% PS4, 12% Switch, 6% Xbox… that’s just physical sales. Xbox is more digital than the others
