Occasionally, the data we use for this weekly article comes in a bit late, but this one really pushed the envelope. UK Sales Charts, on a Friday? Anyone would think it's nearly Christmas with this lax approach. (We're sure everyone worked very hard, and thank you for compiling the data, and have a good holiday)
Anyway, let's look at the physical games sales from last weekend. FIFA 22 is in an unsurprising first place, and will likely be the Christmas number one. It'll be either that or Call of Duty: Vanguard, which is sitting rather comfortably in second.
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales jumps back into the top 10 with a 9th place result, almost certainly fuelled by spurts of PS5 stock, but the release of the new Spidey movie won't have hurt its chances. Meanwhile, Just Dance 2022 is the only other PlayStation game in the top 10 at number five. Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, eighth last week, is currently in 20th.
Here's the latest top 10 in full.
