Predictably, Elden Ring became the best-selling game of the week in UK stores, surpassing the number of all previous From Software titles.
Hidetaka Miyazaki’s new game has sold 26% more than Dark Souls III, a particularly relevant figure if we take into account the evolution of consumption patterns compared to 2016 and the growth of sales in digital format , now in the majority.
Elden Ring’s numbers further make it the third-best launch of 2022, now only behind Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Horizon Forbidden West.
Respecting repair by platform, 63% of sales correspond to the PlayStation 5 version, 17% to the PlayStation 4, 17% to the Xbox and 3% to the PC.
Then there is the list of the ten best-selling video games of the week in the United Kingdom, where there remains the other novelty, Grid Legends, which barely occupies the tenth octave position (with 56% of sales for PlayStation 5, 26% for Xbox and 17% for PlayStation 4).
