Top Selling Video Games & Cloud Availability – Week Ending June 1

Every week, GFK (Growth From Knowledge), a market analysis firm, puts out a list of Top 40 game sales in the UK. This list appears to be derived from retailer data and other sources.

Last week, 19 of the Top 40 Games are available to play on what we consider bonafide Cloud Gaming services (e.g. Xbox Cloud Gaming, PlayStation Cloud Gaming, GeForce NOW, where game installations, updates are all automatically managed for you).

24 games are available to play on Cloud PC like services (e.g. Shadow, AirGPU and Boosteroid’s “Install and Play” service, where you must manually install and update games in your own private cloud storage).

Top 40 Game Availability by Service

Our Cloud Gaming stats page keeps track of the number of Top 40 games available to play on different cloud services each week. The below figure shows a capture of the data from that page.

Since the list typically includes around 50% Nintendo exclusives, around 20 titles is the best we can usually hope for. You can see that the number of games available to play on Cloud Gaming services has been trending up for about a year.

The ability to stream purchased games from the PlayStation Store (currently only supported on PS5 devices) helped. GeForce NOW and Xbox Cloud Gaming (with Game Pass being the top game subscription) are typically nearby in terms of count. We’ve just recently started tracking game availability on Boosteroid’s Install and Play Catalog and Cloud PC services like Shadow and AirGPU.
