In general, video games bring more revenue than other types of entertainment in the UK at present. It is known that the market of games has increased its size by two times since 2007. In particular, digital sources like microtransactions and DLC make up a large share in the growth. The revenue from the digital sources accounts for more than 80 percent of market share of games in the UK.

According to Kim Bayley, the Entertainment Retailers Association's CEO, the digital technology's potential has been successfully applied in the games industry to provide compelling and new entertainment types. Although the games industry has the shorter development period than the other three sectors, it has become the largest one.

Below is the list of top 20 boxed games with the highest revenue in 2018. However, this chart does not mention the date of digital sales. Therefore, it should not be considered all UK game sales' representative.
