EA Sports and Naughty Dog Impressed in a Difficult January in the UK
EA Sports and Naughty Dog impressed in a difficult month of January in the UK, game and console sales both in physical and digital formats in the UK have declined in comparison to the same month of 2023.
Playing on PC, Steam Deck, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch sometimes has sales data such as those of the UK, sometimes weekly and other times – as in this case – monthly.
As we read from GamesIndustry.biz, during January of 2024, 2.47 million games were sold in the country. This represents a 3% decrease during the same period of 2023, although it’s not much to worry about.
This data is based on GSD data, which records all physical and digital game sales from most of the major external publishers.
Sales for this past month are led by EA Sports FC 24, the Electronic Arts football game that follows FIFA 23 and also was 1st in January 2023; although it has had a better January than its predecessor.
Last year did not have a large number of new releases (Dead Space Remake was the most noteworthy new release in 4th place), but this time there were a couple of new titles.
The most notable ‘newcomer’ in 2nd place was The Last of Us Part II Remastered, a game that did very well in sales and benefited from the € 10 offer to upgrade from one PlayStation to another with a The Last of Us Part II cup.
In its first two weeks on the market, the game sold twice and a half more copies than The Last of Us Part 1 when it was released in September 2022.
