FIFA 19 tops the UK gaming retail charts

Week one sales down year-on-year


FIFA 19 is the best-selling game in the UK at retail over the last week, with the series knocking old Spidey off his spot at the top of the charts. According to early stats shared over at GI.biz, this year's game is already the biggest video game launch of the year, despite the fact that week one retail sales are actually down 25% year-on-year. For the time being the UK charts don't take digital sales into account, so it could well be that digital downloads account for nearly all of the aforementioned 25% drop (indeed, sales may even surpass those of last year).

It's been a good week for the accountants at Sony, with Spider-Man becoming the second best-selling game of the year so far, overtaking Far Cry 5 - impressive when you think that Insomniac's web-slinging adventure is a platform exclusive. Sony's console also accounts for 64% sales of FIFA 19, and 54% of sales of the top ten's other debut title, Valkyria Chronicles 4. Check out the GfK Chart-Track top ten below:

1. FIFA 19 / EA
2. Spider-Man / Sony
3. Shadow of the Tomb Raider / Square Enix
4. Crash Bandicoot: Nsane Trilogy / Activision
5. Grand Theft Auto V / Take-Two
6. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe / Nintendo
7. The Elder Scrolls Online / Bethesda
8. NBA 2K19 / Take-Two
9. Valkyria Chronicles 4 / Sega
10. Minecraft (Xbox Edition) / Microsoft
