The weekly UK software sales for the week ending on September 24th, 2022, are in. Splatoon 3 remains on top despite the drop in sales, and The Diofield Chronicle enters the chart at No. 17. Take a look at the top 40 games below via GfK, with additional notes below that.
- Even after a 44% drop in sales, Splatoon 3 remains as the best-selling boxed game for the third consecutive week.
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sales dropped 5% from last week, but still managed to rise to No. 2
- A retail promotion helped boost Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga by 43%, jumping from No. 18 to No. 10
No surprise Splatoon 3 remains at number 1.
It's not a good reflection on Stray's sales that it couldn't reach number 1 against weak sales opposition. I hear it's a good game, but I can imagine a lot of gamers looking at the box art before quickly moving on.
There's probably only going to be one game atop the charts for the foreseeable future, for better or worse. FIFA 23 releases this week, so everything else is likely playing second fiddle to it.
