Contrary to popular belief, games on consoles are out-selling games on PC at the moment in the UK. Top-selling PC games are mostly simulation games like Football Manager 2023 and Farming Simulator 22. Diablo IV has outsold PC on both PlayStation 5 and Xbox X and S series.
It is no surprise that Final Fantasy XVI and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom got the number one and two spots. Both games have huge followings and enough hype around the games to be successful. Both games got highly positive reviews, which is also a huge factor.
Aliens: Dark Descent, the newly released real-time strategy video game developed by Tindalos Interactive, took the 11th spot on the list, which might be considered a big success. The game was released in a busy time period when the most highly anticipated AAA titles were released.
