EA Sports FC 24 has remained in first place on the Europe charts for January 2024, according to GSD data reported by GamesIndustry. Sales for the game are nearly identical to FIFA 23 last year.

The Last of Us Part II Remastered debuted in second place on the charts with sales over two and a half timers bigger than the launch of The Last of Us Part I. The remaster did benefit from the £10 upgrade offer, which let PS4 owners upgrade to the PS5 version of the game for just £10.

Tekken 8 debuted in seventh place with sales up over 80 percent compared to the launch week of Street Fighter 6. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown debuted in ninth place.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice shot up the charts to eighth place thanks to a heavy discount on Steam and the sequel, Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, getting a May 21 release date.

Palworld would have likely debuted on the charts, however, digital sales from the publisher were not given.

There were 12.14 million video games sold in Europe in January, which is down 7.3 percent year-on-year.

Console sales in the tracked European markets for January are down 1.6 percent year-on-year to nearly 475,000 consoles sold. It should be noted console sales in the UK, Germany, and some Eastern European countries are not included.

The PlayStation 5 was the best-selling console with strong sales for the month, which was offset by sharp declines in the Nintendo switch. Xbox Series X|S also saw a slight decrease year-on-year.
