UK Charts: Call of Duty back at No.1 and Digimon in the Top Ten

It's a quiet week for physical games sales

January is always a slow month for video game releases and sales, and this year arguably even more so - this is the first week in 2018 where we have a new boxed game in the UK Top 40.

That game is Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory, which actually places a spot higher than its predecessor managed - Digimon: Cyber Sleuth debuted at No.11 in February 2016).

Overall, sales have been slowing down rapidly, which is why Call of Duty: WWII returns to the top of the charts despite unit sales dropping 17% week-on-week. If it manages another week at No.1, then the game will equal the all-time No.1s for the series (a record held by Call of Duty: Black Ops III).

FIFA 18 climbs one place to No.2 with a 27% sales drop, whereas GTA V drops to No.3 with a 53% sales tumble.

Mario Kart 8: Deluxe also rose up the charts despite a 6% fall in sales (up to No.4), while The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild now sits just behind it at No.5 with a 2% increase in sales week-on-week. With Super Mario Odyssey at No.8, there continues to be three Nintendo-published games in the Top Ten.

Otherwise, it's a relatively quiet week. The new Arcade Edition of Street Fighter came out, and was greeted by rave reviews. But it didn't crack the Top 40. All previous Street Fighter V owners received all the extras supplied in the new edition for free.

Here is the UKIE/GfK Top Ten for the week ending January 20th:
