UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Sprints in Front of inFAMOUS: Second Son

Posted by Sammy Barker

On fine form

inFAMOUS: Second Son’s reign at the top of the UK sales charts appears to be over, as EA Sports’ uber-popular soccer simulation FIFA 14 has scored its 11th spell at the top of the league. Sucker Punch’s superhero excursion actually dropped out of the European qualification spots entirely, finishing up in sixth – a slightly disappointing result considering its previous command of the best sellers list.

Despite being the best entry in the series, Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition also struggled, debuting in 29th on both the PlayStation 4 and Vita. The top ten told a familiar story as a consequence, with Call of Duty: Ghosts, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and The LEGO Movie Videogame all putting in strong appearances.

As always, you can peruse the full list of movers and shakers through here. With the busy March release window over, we suspect that you may want to get used to this lineup. What’s been keeping your wallet empty of late? Open up in the comments section below.

Massive dropoff. Meanwhile, Titanfall held strong at no. 3, doesn't seem hype for that game has dropped off. It'd probably be the consistent top seller if EA had told MS to take its money and shove it.

A bit strange really, I wouldn't at all be surprised if it went back up to number one again though. As far as I can see titan fall is the only half decent exclusive available on xb1 so no surprise its still lingering.

@SimonAdebisi @Gamer83 One major change since last week is that the inFAMOUS bundle is now largely sold out here in the UK, whereas Titanfall bundles are readily available, which may have had some impact. No surprise to see a massively hyped online shooter have long legs, though - I'm sure it'll get another bump on the back of the 360 launch this week.

@get2sammyb That's it, Titanfall is on a console that's readily available & is on PC too, where's the PS4 is still in such high demand that it's tough to find one that isn't the Infamous bundle & isn't from a retail that's upped the price to a ridiculous level. I've been hearing a lot from people on social media that the level of interest in Titanfall has seen a huge drop, even the twitch numbers have plummeted. Most say that it's fun for a few hours but it severely lacks compelling modes & it plays things just a bit too safely. Sounds like it was one of those games that has some great ideas but maybe won't reach it's best till a sequel.

Online games will always outsell offline games its the way it is now, offline games dont have enough to keep ppl buying them after the first few weeks of release no matter how good they are.
