FIFA 23 Tops UK Software List For 2022

With the past year…um…in the past…many are crunching the numbers to see how well games and consoles did in certain regions. In the UK, the Nintendo Switch was able to edge out the PS5 and take the top spot hardware-wise. But as for software? That crown belongs to FIFA 23. That result shouldn’t surprise too much due to not only the World Cup being in 2022, but the UK region contains the ‘diehards’ of the sport who happily play the game every chance they get.
