FIFA 18 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Sony commanded a dizzying 60 per cent of launch FIFA 18 sales after snagging marketing rights to the soccer simulation. Last year it managed 53 per cent, so it’s actually improved its share of the spoils year-over-year. However, it’s worth noting that sales of the footie favourite are actually down 25 per cent compared to FIFA 17, though that was a Tuesday launch as opposed to this year’s version being a Friday release unless you bought one of the more expensive editions.

Xbox One could only muster 37 per cent of the FIFA 18 launch sales, while the Nintendo Switch accounted for just one per cent – some perspective for fans of that platform, perhaps. It’s worth adding that none of this data takes into account digital sales, where the title has been promoted heavily on each manufacturer’s storefront.

There’s not a whole lot else to say in this week’s UK sales charts. Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony just about managed to make the best sellers list in 36th position, while the likes of Destiny 2, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, and Project CARS 2 continued to hang around in the Top Ten.
