FIFA 17 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Manchester City may not have been able to solidify their early season dominance last week, dropping points against Celtic in the Champions League and losing to Tottenham in the Premier League – but FIFA 17 has managed what Pep Guardiola couldn't. The soccer sim, despite being considered inferior to this year's PES 2017: Pro Evolution Soccer, has scored a hat-trick or three – smashing the series' already ginormous sales record.

Early estimates put the title's first week numbers at well over one million units, with 53 per cent of the software share coming courtesy of the PlayStation 4. That'll be considered a very good result by Sony considering that Microsoft had the official bundle and all of the marketing rights. To be fair, though, the platform holder was flogging the title in £150 bundles across the UK last week, which surely helped its cause.

Elsewhere, that same promotion saw LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens power its way into third in the charts, while 2K Games secured a double header between BioShock: The Collection and XCOM 2 in fourth and fifth respectively. Down in the lower end of the top ten, Destiny: The Collection, Rocket League, NBA 2K17, and Grand Theft Auto V occupied the spots.
