EA Sports FC 24 Comes on Top in UK Physical Sales Charts, Hogwarts Legacy follows

EA Sports FC 24 surged to the top of the UK’s physical sales charts, as reported by Gfk (via GamesIndustry), marking a significant 42% increase in sales. This rise in sales dethroned Hogwarts Legacy, pushing it to second place. This shift contributed to price reductions for the PS4 and PS5 versions of EA’s football title.

A new Surprise in the rankings is the reappearance of Mortal Kombat 1, securing the third spot, primarily attributed to PS5 price promotions. Despite a 27% drop in sales, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate maintained its fourth position. The cooperative adventure game It Takes Two made an impressive return to the top ten, landing at the 10th spot after witnessing a 52% surge in sales.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder experienced a downturn, sliding to the fifth position with a 36% decline in sales. Other significant re-entries were Mass Effect: Legendary Edition and Red Dead Redemption 2, although they did not reach the top ten, settling for 21st and 22nd, respectively.

Below is the updated ranking of Gfk’s top-ten best-selling physical video games in the UK for the week ending January 13th:

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
