I think this Star Wars thing might catch on
As we reported earlier this week, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was the biggest LEGO game launch in the UK ever, stealing that title away from LEGO Indiana jones by over 8%. That data was just coming from the retail side of things, but today we have the digital details, and they might be even more impressive.
The latest UK digital charts showed that 61% of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’s sales came from digital shops. To quantify just how big of a launch this was, LEGO Star Wars just narrowly missed out on beating Elden Ring’s digital sales at launch! These sales made it the #1 digital title in the UK for the week ending April 10th, 2022, and also the second biggest game launch of the year overall in the UK.
As for the digital platform breakdown, Xbox accounted for 41% of sales, PlayStation accounted for 34%, PC 18% and Switch 7%. With digital and physical sales combined, PlayStation was the biggest platform with 39% of sales, followed by Xbox (34%), then Switch (16%) and finally PC (11%).
