Horizon: Forbidden West is once again the best-selling game in UK retail stores, taking the #1 spot according to GfK physical box data reports. This is likely due to continued sales of PlayStation 5 hardware bundles.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3, which was #1 last week, fell to #10. Its sales are down 83%, but it’s worth noting that last week the series had its biggest performance yet, so we’re still likely to see it on the charts for a while as new stock and special editions come in .
Gran Turismo 7 and Pokémon Legends: Arceus returned to the Top 10 this week. The latter has likely seen a spike in interest thanks to people wanting to scratch their Poké-itch (not to be confused with Pokétch, that’s something else) after the Nintendo Direct for the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet games generated some buzz among audiences.
Other than that, it was a bit of a quiet week with no new releases in the Top 10.
If you want to know the rest of the GfK UK Boxed Top 10 between 30 July 2022 and 6 August 2022, it’s as follows:
