Forbidden horizon west registered 94% increase From copies sold in the UK last week thanks New stock from PS5 Arrived in the last few days.
These details come from GamesIndustry’s weekly report on the English retail market, which this time was published with a slight delay compared to the GfK sales ranking, which we posted on our pages yesterday.
Horizon Forbidden West took second place, maintaining its position from the previous week, but in fact posted a massive 94% increase in sales. This is an anomaly given that the latest effort by Guerrilla Games has been available in stores for several months, and it is precisely explained by the arrival of new PS5 stocks in the days which is another sign that Sony’s home console availability is gradually improving in Europe, although we We are still far from optimal.
However, the boost gained thanks to the new PS5 stock wasn’t enough for Horizon Forbidden West to conquer the top of the rankings, as we instead found F1 22 in its first week.
In this regard, from GamesIndustry data we learn that the new racing game from Codemasters and Electronic Arts is only sixteen In the ranking of the best debut in the series in the UK, behind Formula One 2001 and F1 2021. This figure partly justifies the increase in the number of purchases made digitally, given that the ratings set by GfK only take into account retail copies.
However, F1 is still among the most profitable brands in the UK. Looking at retail sales alone, the chain generated revenue for more than that 205 million pounds It is the 23rd highest paid brand in the UK.
