Like every Monday, GFK Entertainment has shared the video game sales charts for the past week in the UK region, although for the moment only physical sales are taken into account since the digital ones are coming in a few days. For the second week in a row, Hogwarts Legacy remains the top seller, marking a major success for WB Games.
Even before its release, it was clear that Hogwarts Legacy was going to be a sales phenomenon, as it remained the bestseller on Steam for four weeks thanks to its pre-sales since before it officially went on sale. Hogwarts Legacy officially launched on Friday 10th February and it has continued to sell very well ever since, as evidenced by weekly sales in the UK.
The second best-selling game of the week in the region was FIFA 23, up one spot from last week and demonstrating the popularity of football. Third place is taken by God of War Ragnarok, the PlayStation exclusive that released in November last year and was in second place last week.
