Nintendo has released two new Pokémon games, and both immediately shone at the top of the best-selling games in the UK market. Pokémon: Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon: Shining Pearl “glow and burn” all over the world, so other games had to be satisfied with lower results.
This primarily refers to the new Battlefield, which took only third place. Half of the total sales of the game are related to the PlayStation 5 version, while another 20 percent “took” the PlayStation 4 version. Call of Duty: Vanguard is in fourth place, after being at the very top for a couple of weeks. Surprisingly, Miles Morales returned to the list, as did Far Cry 6, probably because of the discount.
Grand Theft Auto V dropped all the way to 27th place, which is probably the lowest position for this game after a very long time, perhaps from the very beginning. GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition is coming soon in a physical edition, so it will be interesting to check the status of the series on a list like this in a couple of weeks.
