In the first days after the release of Gran Turismo 7, Elden Ring managed to move Elden Ring from the first place in the UK retail top.
This is the fourth new game in the country to top the physical media sales chart, having previously been topped by Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Horizon Forbidden West, and Elden Ring.
At the same time, GT7 sales were 28% lower than at the GT Sport launch in 2017. True, the data does not yet include information about digital successes. Most of the copies sold came from the PS5 version – 76%.
Elden Ring dropped to number two as expected, with sales down 69% from last week. This is a fairly successful result, since such indicators are usually equal to 80%.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus is in third place with a 16% drop in sales, but there is no data on digital copies. And Horizon Forbidden West has 47%. Another new top game was Triangle Strategy for Nintendo Switch, landing at #7.
