The GfK group has revealed physical sales in the United Kingdom from September 4 to 10, 2023.
Starfield reached first place with its standard version in physical format; The Xbox Series X/S version has achieved more sales than the PC version, as expected.
According to comments Chris Dring from GamesIndustryis below titles like Resident Evil 4 or Dead Island 2, but has similar figures to Diablo 4, another game with a large percentage of digital sales.
The upgrade to the Premium version has fallen to 34th place after its debut in seventh position; One of the main attractions of the improvement was early access to the digital version.
The other two new additions to the Top 10 are NBA 2K24 in seventh position and Fae Farm in ninth position.
Returning to Starfield, we know thanks to SteamDB that it has surpassed the number of simultaneous users on Steam for Skyrim by getting 330,723 players at the same time, compared to 287,411 for Elder Scrolls V. However, it is still behind the best game on this platform. Bethesda Game Studios: Fallout 4 with 472,962 simultaneous users.
