Elden Ring downloads keep Gran Turismo 7 from No.1 | UK Digital Charts

57% of Gran Turismo 7's launch sales were via PSN

Elden Ring was the UK's best-selling download game for the second week in a row, according to the latest GSD charts.

Compared to last week's impressive launch, Elden Ring's digital sales are down 56%, which is a strong result for a game of this type in its second week.

Overall, digital and physical combined, GSD data says that Elden Ring's sales are down 61% week-on-week. 42% of sales were on PlayStation platforms, 32% on Xbox and 26% on PC.

That means PS4 and PS5 game Gran Turismo 7 had to settle for second place in its debut week. 57% of sales for the racing sequel came as a digital download.

Compared to the digital launch of 2017's Gran Turismo Sport, sales are up 185%, which just shows the rise of the download market over the past five years.

With digital and physical combined, GSD data shows that 78% of Gran Turismo 7 sales were of the PS5 version. It's the third biggest PS5 launch of the year behind Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West, although it is very close between all three of those games.

Nintendo does not share digital data with the charts, and therefore Triangle Strategy is not featured in the download charts. The game reached No.7 in the GfK boxed charts.

Here is the GSD UK Digital Top Ten (week ending March 5th):

1 Elden Ring (Bandai Namco)
