EA Sports' franchise has started well, with PS4 players making up a large portion of the first-week sales
Each year's FIFA release is a big deal, and that's why it's no surprise to see FIFA 20 at the top of the UK physical charts, as reported by GamesIndustry.biz, who also told us that physical launch sales are down 7% when compared to last year
PS4 made up 61% of the sales, with Xbox One coming in at 38% and Nintendo Switch owners making up 1%. PS4 sales were down, while the other two were up compared to last year, and many retailers have been hosting console bundles featuring the game.
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age on Switch is another new entry, coming in at number 11 and selling around half of what the original release sold last year. Code Vein also debuted at 13, with The Surge 2 at 35 as well.
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening falls off the top spot with a 62% decline in sales, with Borderlands 3 also sitting behind it after a 45% decrease. For the full top 10, though, check down below.
