The latest games have managed to knock the titans that are FIFA 23 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe down a peg.
When we look at the weekly boxed sales data in the UK, there are always a couple of repeat offenders at the top of the list. The latest FIFA, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and the most recent Call of Duty are always contenders for the top spots, but this past week has seen a change of pace.
As revealed in the latest weekly sales data, we can see that Dead Island 2 has topped the physical sales charts, and that coming up in second and third is the recent launches of Minecraft Legends and Advance Wars 1 + 2: Re-Boot Camp.
Following these three come the titans of FIFA 23 and Mario Kart, all ahead of Super Mario Odyssey (which is seeing a resurgence thanks to the animated Mario film), Hogwarts Legacy, Resident Evil 4, Minecraft, and with God of War: Ragnarök rounding out the top ten. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II actually slipped four spots and fell to 12th this week.
