We're quickly approaching Christmas Day, so shoppers are snapping up this year's most popular games to wrap up and place under the Christmas tree (younger users, read: send off to Santa Claus). Therefore, the top three titles are the exact same as last week: FIFA 22 tops the list, Call of Duty: Vanguard is second, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe takes the bronze medal. It's not the most exciting weekly instalment of the UK Sales Charts, but at least there are a couple of interesting talking points further down the list.
New entries include Among Us and Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - Definitive Edition. They take the fifth and sixth positions respectively. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales has also received a Christmas sales boost, reaching fourth place after claiming ninth last week. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was in 11th according to GamesIndustry.biz.
Returning to Among Us, 41 per cent of sales for boxed copies were for the PlayStation 5 and PS4 versions collectively. The two platforms just edge out the Nintendo Switch version, which took home 39 per cent of physical sales. And as for the remastered GTA Trilogy, it also sold best on PlayStation after garnering 67 per cent of boxed purchases in the UK.
