UK Sales Charts: Tekken 8 KOs the Competition with Number One Debut 1

If the UK's physical games chart is anything to go by, Tekken 8 looks to be a hit for Bandai Namco. It's debuted in the number one spot, with nearly two thirds of copies sold being the PS5 version. According to GamesIndustry's Christopher Dring, the game's physical launch sales are "more than double" those of Street Fighter 6 — though this doesn't account for digital at all. Still, it's clearly a very healthy launch weekend for Tekken.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth settles for second place, but that's still a strong result for for SEGA's series. Again, the PS5 version is the most popular at physical retail, accounting for just over three quarters of the total.

The duo of new releases forces the usual suspects down the pecking order. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is third, EA Sports FC 24 is fourth, and Hogwarts Legacy is down from first to seventh. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown has also moved down, now in 10th after debuting in fourth place.

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