Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon

While the UK's boxed games sales can't be used to indicate trends worldwide, we think it's safe to say Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is doing pretty well for itself. Publisher Bandai Namco will no doubt be pleased with its performance so far; it's landed at number one in the UK physical chart, displacing some mainstays with another solid debut from FromSoftware. Almost two thirds of the physical copies sold were for PS5. It won't be selling Elden Ring numbers, but we're sure the new game will be breaking series records pretty quickly.

After taking a dive to 24th last week, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga force leaps back into sixth place. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt also makes a return to the top 10 in ninth place. Hogwarts Legacy is also up, moving from ninth to fifth. Meanwhile, FIFA 23, which was third last week, is now in fourth, and GTA 5 moves from second to 10th.

Here's the latest top 10 in full.
