UK Sales Charts: FIFA World Cup Falls to Respawn's FPS
Posted by Sammy Barker
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.
