UK Sales Charts: Lord of the Rings: Gollum manages a top 10 debut, sells best on PS5



The UK’s undying love for all things Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings: Gollum has landed a surprisingly strong position in the latest charts. Accounting for physical sales only, Nacon’s critically panned adventure debuted at number six — a perhaps surprising result for a game so poorly received that the developer issued an apology. The PS5 version sold best at retail, accounting for 70 percent of all physical sales of the game during the launch weekend.

That’s probably the only real upset in the chart this time; It’s business as usual elsewhere. With the top three unchanged from last week State tears Following FIFA 23 and Hogwarts Legacy. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has slipped from fourth to fifth place, while Grand Theft Auto V has made a comeback, currently at number eight. Dead Island 2 holds on at 10th place. As with Gollum, most of the big third-party releases are selling most of their copies on the PS5 – physically, at least.

Here’s the new top 10 in full.
