The UK's latest boxed games chart has arrived, and to the surprise of nobody, Bethesda's sci-fi RPG Starfield is king of the castle this time. Generally speaking, Xbox games don't tend to do well at physical retail, but this huge exclusive is definitely breaking that convention. While we don't have specific numbers, the game quickly found its way to 6 million players; it'd be interesting to know how many of those bought a disc rather than claiming on Game Pass.
Anyway, it's knocked Hogwarts Legacy down into second place, while LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga moves from second to fourth. Interestingly, Mortal Kombat 11 has been in the top 10 for several weeks, and is now at its highest position of number five. Presumably this is due to the mounting excitement for Mortal Kombat 1, which is only a matter of days away, but it's possible that 11 is currently reduced in price — perhaps a bit of both.
Here's the latest top 10 in full.
