UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Ends 2013 at the Top of the League
Posted by Sammy Barker
This week’s UK sales charts are more predictable than a Manchester City home win, with FIFA 14 finishing the year in first position. Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, and Grand Theft Auto V predictably rounded out the top five, as Need for Speed: Rivals and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes occupied the sixth and seventh spots respectively.
Gran Turismo 6 actually moved up a gear, parking up in tenth, while Killzone: Shadow Fall dropped all the way down into 14th. Elsewhere, Mark Cerny’s throwback platformer Knack continued to perform better than expected on the back of bundles, with the platformer once again outpacing strong competition from Dead Rising 3 and Super Mario 3D World in 16th.
Perhaps most interesting is that the PlayStation 4 version of FIFA 14 is actually outselling its current generation counterpart, indicating that the British market is adopting the new device in droves. The same trend is true of Battlefield 4 and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Have you now committed to snagging all of your multiformat software on the new machine?
