Horizon Forbidden West has come top of the newest weekly UK sales chart documenting physical purchases thanks to the latest PS5 hardware bundle offered by Sony. While the official bundle only included a code for a digital download, Chris Dring of GamesIndustry.biz has clarified GfK counts codes supplied in bundles as physical sales. As a result, the PlayStation exclusive takes first place.
Sales rose by 94 per cent week on week, and other popular PS5 titles have also profited. Gran Turismo 7 is back in the top 10 after a 38 per cent increase in sales while Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart returns in 15th place after a 275 per cent spike in boxed purchases. The only brand new entry to speak of is Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong, which begins life in 20th.
It's abundantly clear that when PS5 Stock is available, the system and its selection of games are being bought in their droves. Other movers this week include LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga dropping to third, Grand Theft Auto V moving up a place into seventh, and FIFA 22 claiming eighth place.
Here's the latest top 10 in full.
