Last month marked the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale for 2023, and we mentioned at the time how Call of Duty had essentially taken over the "Top Paid Games" list as a result, with many of the series' Xbox 360 titles selling very well.
That's now translated to the official UK gaming charts for July 2023, which saw 2009's Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and 2012's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 climb into the top ten above the likes of Hogwarts Legacy, F1 23, Minecraft, Diablo 4 and even the 2022 version of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Madness!
Unfortunately for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, they came in third place in the console charts for the month of July in the UK, with sales falling 12% compared to June. Altogether, their UK sales have been down almost 23% in 2023.
