UK Sales Charts: FIFA World Cup Falls to Respawn's FPS

Runners up

Enforcing stereotypes about the British and the beautiful game, there are two soccer simulations in the top five of this week’s UK sales charts. 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil sprinted out of the blocks into second, though it couldn’t topple long-running frontrunner Titanfall. Meanwhile, FIFA 14 landed a Champion’s League spot in fourth, one spot below LEGO The Hobbit.

Elsewhere, fan favourite Call of Duty: Ghosts fired away in fifth position, while South Park: The Stick of Truth pointed in the direction of sixth. Newcomer Trials Fusion entered in seventh, though it’s worth stressing that these charts do not take into account digital sales, which is where the Ubisoft published physics platformer is likely to have attained most of its install base.

Critically acclaimed MMO Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn debuted in 20th place, though its sales are also likely to have been impacted by the PlayStation 3 upgrade offer at launch. inFAMOUS: Second Son flaunted its powers in 15th position, while Gran Turismo 6 kept the 36th spot warm following ongoing retailer promotions.

What’s kept your wallet out of cash recently? Did you pick up Trials Fusion in a box, or download it instead? Accelerate away in the comments section below.

Its no suprise to see Titanfall still topping the chart. I hear the 360 version is doing quite well, which is no surprise when you consider how much of a good job Bluepoint did with the port. I have started to wonder how the LEGO games keep doing so well and people aren't fatigued from them. It only feels like a couple of months since the LEGO Movie game release lol My purchase for the week was a steel-tinned copy of Killzone: Shadowfall for £9.99. Teh bargainz

Isn't World Cup just 2014 w/ a different cover? I'm surprised it did as well as it did. Though I have to admit World Cup is the only soccer I watch, so I know how huge it is. (I went to grad school down the block from a Mexican resraurant - High on Rose - some of my best grad school memories are the 2 World Cups I watched there in '90 and of course '94 when we had it. And I still remember Maradona from '86.)
