UK Sales Charts: Hogwarts Legacy Is the Country's Biggest Boxed Release of 2023 1

The UK's final weekly chart of 2023 for physical games is here, and it's Hogwarts Legacy that takes the top spot as the year comes to a close. However, WB Games' open world Harry Potter title has achieved more than that — as reported by GamesIndustry, it's the UK's best-selling boxed game of 2023 overall. Usually, that title goes to EA Sports and its annual football game, but Hogwarts Legacy won out over EA Sports FC 24, ending a 10-year streak.

In the final chart of 2023, the footie sim actually comes in at number six, its lowest result in many weeks. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is up one place into third, while Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is holding steady in fifth. Moving from 10th to seventh is GTA5, and moving down one spot is Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, from eighth to ninth. Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate makes a big jump back into eighth place from 19th.

Here's the latest top 10 in full (physical sales only).
