UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Sprints to the Summit

Unsurprisingly, this week’s UK sales chart is dominated by a certain non-Sony next generation console. With the Xbox One launching in Britain last Friday, a large chunk of this week’s top titles were sold on the Microsoft manufactured machine. That includes FIFA 14, which shot straight to the top of the league after seeing a 328 per cent increase in sales. Despite the console not being out yet, the PlayStation 4 version of the soccer sim also managed to move a handful of copies – but we expect that tally to soar next week following the launch of the Japanese giant’s device.
Elsewhere, Call of Duty: Ghosts – which is also already available on the PS4 – slipped into second, while Battlefield 4 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag fought it out for third and fourth respectively. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes swooped into sixth, while Grand Theft Auto V was forced to settle all the way down in eighth. It’ll be interesting to see how Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack fare among the slew of big multiformat hits next week. We’re not expecting the latter to do especially well – but we’re confident that Guerrilla Games’ first-person shooter will breach the top ten.
