Always bet on Grand Theft Auto V. The game has been pretty consistently among the bestsellers since its launch nearly 10 years ago, and it's now reached an astonishing 180 million copies sold. The UK's physical sales numbers will just be a drop in the bucket at this point, but it's still worth noting the game is currently second place in the chart — the highest it's been for a while. This comes down largely to PS5, with this version of the game accounting for about two thirds of the copies sold.

It actually sends FIFA 23 down a spot to third. Meanwhile, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate is climbing, up from ninth to fifth place. After dipping out of the top 10 for a couple of weeks, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is back at number six, while Hogwarts Legacy dips a few places into number nine.

Here's the latest top 10 in full.
