It's a New Year and now that we're into the second week of 2023, the UK boxed sales for the first week of January have been revealed. The UK Interactive Entertainment body (UKIE) has revealed the top 40 games that made up the physical sales chart for the week ending January 7, and following its impressive launch in November, its God of War: Ragnarök that continues to excel and has taken the top slot.

The game finds itself above the second place FIFA 23 and the third placing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, with the top ten then being a Nintendo lockout. Positions 4-10 are occupied by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokémon Violet, Nintendo Switch Sports, Pokémon Scarlet, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Minecraft, and finally New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.

As there hasn't been any significant release in a few weeks, there are no new entries to be aware of as it stands.
