Call of Duty: Vanguard repeated as the best-selling game of the past week in physical format and in the UK. That shooter Activision is down 47% over the first week, which isn’t a particularly noticeable drop compared to other launches, but initial sales weren’t as high as expected; in fact, they are the worst in the story of the last 14 years.
There have been a few novelties in recent days that have slipped into the sales list. Forza Horizon 5 debut in fourth place, with physical sales that are 80% lower than Forza Horizon 4 2018, although this doesn’t take into account digital sales and certainly a growing number of players are trying it on Xbox Game Pass; digital sales will be announced at the end of the week.
In sixth place we find Jurassic World: Evolution 2 border, 37% lower than its 2018 predecessor, but again this does not take into account digital distribution advances. 34% of sales for the PlayStation 5, 33% for the PlayStation 4 and the same percentage for the Xbox.
Other launches are Shin Megami Tensei V from that Nintendo Switch enter the ninth position, a fact that is better than other JRPGs -a genre specific to this country-; for example, 60% more than Bravely Default II or 43% more than Monster Hunter Story 2, good for Nintendo consoles, or 23% more than Tales of Arise from PlayStation and Xbox.
Football Manager 2022 Sega comes in at number 12 – 25% lower than its predecessor – but It is known that most of the sales will be made on Steam. Finally Nickelodeon All-Star Fights Launched on November 5, it debuted at number 23, with 56% of sales on Nintendo Switch, 21% on PS5, 14% on PS4 and 10% on Xbox.
