Resident Evil Village rides the crest of the wave, but New Pokémon Snap does not give up: here are the latest sales figures for video games

Like every week, it's time again to dedicate ourselves to sales data British, and between Games best sellers could not but triumph the horror branded Capcom. Resident evil village took first place, as well as this year's second most successful launch after Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. 49% of its sales were on PS5, 31% on PS4 and 20% on Xbox. On the front Sony, is the third biggest launch for PS4 after Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Assassin's Creed Valhalla, both released last November.



The horrid confrontations of Resident Evil Village

In fact, when it comes to best-selling video games in the First week, Resident Evil Village places seventh in sales figures, after Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Demon's Souls, Watch Dogs Legion and Sackboy: A Big Adventure. It is also the second best week for a game of Xbox Series X and Series S, after Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. In the global ranking for the Microsoft console, the Capcom title gives the second place to Immortals Fenyx Rising. Compared to its predecessors, however, the newcomer struggles.

Compared to the launch of Resident Evil 2: Remake (2019), Village sold 25% fewer copies. The comparison is even more dire with Resident Evil 7 (2017), with as much as 40% less. More generous speech, fortunately, for Resident Evil 3 Remake, which Village exceeded by 76%. Of course, as always, this is all about the physical format here - digital has accelerated quite a bit over the past 18 months. Given the game's popularity on Steam, the results for the digital format are likely to prove more lenient towards next weekend.
