GT7 dominates the new top 5 best-selling video games in France for week 9. Pokémon Legends Arceus resists, unlike Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West.
Like every week, the SELL (Syndicate of Leisure Software Publishers) takes stock of the best-selling video games in France. For week 9, from February 28 to March 6, 2022, Gran Turismo 7 takes off. Discover the complete France charts.
Nintendo and PlayStation, the big winners
If the ranking of the charts in France is often dominated by Big N, the best sales of video games in France for the S9 are under the sign of the love letter to the automobile: GT7.
the driving simulator wins the top 3 with its PS5, PS4, and PS5 25th Anniversary Editions. A list that shows that the genre is perhaps not so dead as that. But we will have to wait for the sales figures to see the difference with Gran Turismo Sport and draw conclusions.
In the fourth and fifth positions, Nintendo is not giving up with Pokémon Legends Arceus and Triangle Strategy.
In week 8, PlayStation was still in the top 5 with Horizon Forbidden West on PlayStation 4 and 5. Guerrilla Games’ game was however edged out by Elden Ring PS4, Pokémon Legends Arceus, and Elden Ring PS5, respectively third, second, and first.
Charts France: what about the PC?
On PC, it’s necessarily a completely different ranking with a top 3 made up of Farming Simulator 22 (3rd), Elden Ring Launch Edition (2nd), and Elden Ring Collector’s Edition (1st). This classification is identical to the previous one, including the order of the games. We, therefore, see the intact power of the farmer simulator, and the insolent success of Elden Ring. As soon as it was released, the new FromSoftware defied the odds by stringing together records in different fields. Sales, number of simultaneous players on Steam, or attendance on Twitch, the franchise has done better than any souls.
