FIFA 23 ends God of War Ragnarok's run at No.1 | UK Boxed Charts

Halo Wars 2 back in the charts due to a £3 deal at GAME

FIFA 23 topped the charts in a very quiet week for UK boxed video games.

GfK data shows FIFA sales dropped 20% week-on-week, but it still jumped to No.1 because God of War Ragnarok's sales fell 38%.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 holds third place (sales down 15%), while Mario Kart 8: Deluxe is still at No.4 (sales down 22%). Rounding off the Top Five is Nintendo Switch Sports, which moved up a spot despite sales falling 26%.

There were sales falls across the board, with overall boxed game sales down 23% over last week.

Our first new release of the year is One Piece Odyssey, which debuts at No.14.

A 'Clearance' sale from UK retailer GAME also had an impact on the charts. Halo Wars 2 was on sale or less than £3, and it jumps back into the charts at No.28. And Ori and the Will of the Wisps makes No.34 after a price drop to £5.

Next week, Fire Emblem Engage from Nintendo will by vying for the No.1 position.
