Mario Kart 8 Deluxe whizzes by and Death Stranding coughs from the dust: here are the sales figures from the United Kingdom for video games in physical

By now you know very well that i sales data may not arrive on Monday, but fortunately the results of Games they finally arrived in that of GamesIndustry.biz. The British entity GfK he therefore provides us with his litmus test again, but as always we must first specify that the numbers we will see today do not simply have to do with the United Kingdom alone. There is in fact another consideration to keep in mind: today's data concern only and only the physical format. That said, let's dive into the results collected by the gaming world for the week just ended!



Laughing under the mustache

To close the week in pole position among physical video games was none other than Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, whose sales figures see it jump forward with a 24% surge. Clearly, however, there is an underlying reason: in addition to the undoubted quality of the game, the price cut of twenty pounds for the base model of Nintendo Switch has played a significant role. The podium is all from the Big N this week, with a 9% leap that throws the Switch version of Minecraft in second place, and another 17% leading to third Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Out of the loop - Sales figures for video games

Before moving on to the fourth position in the sales data, let's see which of the video games seen last week (in the ranking two weeks ago, as we will clarify) finds itself fifth. The previous gold medal, Deathloop of Bethesda, lost 82% of sales. A nice roll, but it must also be said that with triple A titles it is more than normal to see them cash in for the most part on day one. On the other hand, the debut of Lost Judgment of SEGA, who finds himself fourth. 62% of copies were sold on PS5, 28% on PS4 and 10% on Xbox Series X and Series S.



Give yourself a hold, Sam Bridges - Sales figures for video games

The exclusive for PS5, Death Stranding: Director's Cut, our top ten is missing this week. Not being penalized by exclusivity, however, is the subject of our recent review, WarioWare: Get it Together!, which in any case loses two positions going from eighth to tenth with a slip of 40%. Speaking of other titles in the middle of the top 40 overall, we have NBA 2K22. The sporting title passes from tenth to thirteenth position, with a 44% roll. He is doing worse Tales of Arise, which drops from fifteenth place to twenty-eight, losing 43% of sales.

The other positions - Sales figures for video games

Before moving on to our final summary, let's see the four remaining positions. In sixth place, after being in eleventh position, he returns to peep out Grand Theft Auto V. Recall that the GamesIndustry.biz report did not provide the percentages for rises and falls. Moving on to seventh place we have the former twelfth classified, that is Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. The eighth classified then recovers a position, F1 2021. Finally, the ninth place is all of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, having previously kept the silver medal.

Concluding records

And we are already here: our sales figures end with the usual one table dedicated to the ten best-selling video games across the Channel. Maybe we should specify what we meant a few paragraphs ago, though. The central column contains the rankings of the week just ended, which however we analyze today. The positions on the left, on the other hand, correspond with the ranking of last week, inherent to the results of two weeks ago. Have a good consultation!
