Elden Ring wasn’t able to hold the top position for very long because Gran Turismo 7 is the top-selling UK video game this week. That said, Elden Ring is still the best-selling video game for the entire year thus far.
As reported by Game Industry, Gran Turismo 7 is the best-selling game in the UK this week. However, physical copies were down 28% compared to the release of Gran Turismo Sport in 2017. This is to be expected though because digital sales are higher now compared to five years ago.
76% of sales were for the PS5 version of GT7. The remaining 24% were gamers buying the older PS4 version. The PS4 version is still selling well since several people cannot get their hands on a PS5 console yet.
GT7 is the fourth biggest game launch of 2022. The game trails behind the likes of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Horizon: Forbidden West and Elden Ring. The latter is the highest selling game for 2022 in the UK. You can check out the full sales chart posted down below.
