Sony's most anticipated and best-reviewed game of this year so far, God of War Ragnarök, has returned to the top of the UK boxed charts due to a 32 per cent increase in sales week-on-week.

The popular action-adventure game from Santa Monica Studios jumped two places to No.1 on the list of best-selling games in the UK thanks to the arrival of more PlayStation 5 stock at UK retail. God of War Ragnarök is also part of the hardware bundle for the new stock of PlayStation 5 consoles, so these results are not surprising at all.

The best-selling game in the UK from last week, FIFA 23 , drops to second place (sales decreased by 18 per cent week-on-week) and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 slips to third place due to sales down by 14 per cent. Pokémon Violet rises to a place No.4, despite a 12 per cent sales drop week-on-week.

Last week's biggest new release, The Callisto Protocol , drops from sixth place to place No.12 due to a 69 per cent sales fall week-on-week. Need for Speed: Unbound , which disappointed in its first week, drops from No.17 to No.19. However, sales only declined 13 per cent, which is good for a game that's been on store shelves for just two weeks.

One more game that came out two weeks ago, Ubisoft's Just Dance 2023, also rose the list by three places and holds a very good 11TH place. This game's week-on-week sales improvement is 17 per cent.
