FIFA 22 Takes the Top Spot in UK Retail Charts

FIFA 22 Takes the Top Spot in UK Retail Charts

With FIFA 22 being among the most popular releases of the year, it’s not surprising that the game was able to dominate the charts for UK boxed retail this week. That said, FIFA 22 sales went down by 35% compared to last year’s installments, with the overall digital sales in the UK and other countries not revealed yet. However, gamers are still flocking the best mobile sports betting apps after the resumption of major sports leagues this year for more entertainment.

FIFA 22 Takes the Top Spot in UK Retail Charts

According to the data released by GFK Chart-Track in the past week, there were several predictable changes in UK’s physical game sales, with FIFA 22 ranking on top. However, despite the launch sales going down by 35% compared to FIFA 21 (which was already down by 42% compared to FIFA 20), the series’ digital sales have continued to grow, with FIFA 22 going up by 31%.

41% of FIFA 22 sales came through the PS4, with Xbox One following closely at 27%, while PS5 accounted for 23%. Surprisingly, the Legacy edition on Nintendo Switch sold more than Xbox Series X/S in physical sales, with Nintendo accounting for 5% of the sales while Xbox made up 4%. However, FIFA 22’s poor performance on Xbox Series X/S is attributable to the dual format of Xbox consoles.

Sonic Colors Ultimate came out as a new entry in the Charts, following its physical release in Europe. The remaster secured the No. 3 spot in the Charts, with 53% of its sales coming from Nintendo switch, with PS4 accounting for 32% and Xbox One registering 15%. The game was followed by Hot Wheels Unleashed at No 4, with its solid debut seeing 39% of its sales through PS5, while the Switch registered 27%. Additionally, the Xbox One accounted for 11% of Hot Wheels Unleashed, while Xbox Series X/S took 8%.

Last week’s first-place winner, “Mario Kart 8: Deluxe” went up by 15% in sales, but that wasn’t enough to outrank FIFA 22 for the top spot. As a result, the entertaining fun racer fell to the second spot in the UK retail charts over the last few weeks. However, the game is still grabbing the attention of 2021 after its enhanced version debuted for Nintendo Switch in April 2017.

The rise of PS5 console releases in the last week resulted in a surge in the sales of Sony-developed titles on the platform. As a result, “Spider-Man: Miles Morales” took No 6 in the charts after a 165% increase in sales, while “Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart” fell to No 11 in the charts after a 321% sales increase. The “Ghost of Tsushima” also returned to the UK charts at No 19, following a 134% increase in sales.

New releases dropped significantly in the charts, with 'Lost Judgement' falling from No 4 to No 40 following a 76% decline in sales, while “Death Stranding” completely disappeared from the charts. Here are the top 10 titles in the UK retail Charts:

  1. FIFA 22 (New Entry)

  2. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe (Previously No 1)

  3. Sonic Colors Ultimate (New Entry)

  4. Hot Wheels Unleashed (New Entry)

  5. Minecraft – Switch (Previously No 2)

  6. Spider-Man: Miles Morales ( Previously No 9)

  7. Animal Crossing New Horizons (Previously No 3)

  8. F1 2021 (No change)

  9. Grand Theft Auto (Previously No 6)

  10. Super Mario 3D World (Previously No 7)
