When we are in the regular range of FIFA's annual games, it is not difficult to guess what the leader of the best-selling physical games table in the UK is. FIFA 22 has become the UK's best-selling game of the week for the fourth week in a row. But that statistic improved in the following weeks as physical sales declined at a much slower pace than previous versions. This week's physical sales of FIFA 22 were just 12 percent lower than last week. Far Cry 6 has seen a 42% drop in sales this week. After this work, Mario Card 8: Deluxe is in the third place of this list. Interestingly, Mario Card 8 has increased sales by 12% compared to the previous week and has risen from fifth to third place. Two Animal Crossing games: New Horizon and Minecraft are also ranked fourth and fifth. Sales of these two works have increased by 17% and 6%, respectively.
with this Now, among the games released this week, The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes has the best performance. House of Ashes, which is actually the third game in the series The Dark Pictures, was able to rank sixth in the list of best-selling physical games in the UK in the first week of its release. Namco's band has previously expressed concern that generational change could have a negative impact on the series' sales. However, sales of this game have decreased by only 27% compared to the previous episode of the series, which was released last year, and this figure is not much. Especially since, in general, digital sales statistics of games are more important these days. For a better analysis of the sales of this work, we have to wait until the digital sales of games are determined.
48% of the physical sales of House of Ashes were on the PlayStation 5 console and 36% on the PlayStation 4 console. The Xbox family of consoles, meanwhile, accounted for only 16 percent of sales. In addition to the big difference between sales on the PlayStation and Xbox consoles, another interesting point is that sales of the game on the PlayStation 5 console were higher than on the PlayStation 4.
Another new game this week was My Friend Peppa Pig Which managed to be ranked 26th on this list. As a children's game, this game is one of those works that usually do not experience much sales in the first week, but over time and in the long run, they can have relatively good sales and attract the audience. 74% of the game's first week sales were on the Nintendo Switch console, 16% on the PlayStation 4 console and finally 9% on the Xbox One console.
The last new game of the week, Dying Light: Platinum Edition First released for the Nintendo Switch console, it ranks 32nd.
If you look at this week's full game sales chart in the UK, you'll probably come across a lot of scary-themed games. Given that we are close to Halloween, it is quite natural.
