From the article: "Sales for Animal Crossing: New Horizons has now surpassed one million physical copies in the UK, making it just one of two games to reach the milestone. The other game is FIFA 21, which is also in second place."

Are you telling me in the whole history of videogame sales in the UK only these 2 games have managed to sell over 1 million physical copies?

It will repeat as well this year, and each future year until GTA6 comes out
