FIFA 14 Takes Number 1 Spot On UK Chart

FIFA 14 Takes Number 1 Spot On UK Chart

It failed to topple FIFA 13′s record-breaking launch, however.

Grand Theft Auto V’s sales fell by 83 percent week on week, yet the game continues to sell well. But FIFA 14, although coming in at Number 1, couldn’t topple FIFA 13′s massive launch week, with sales down 23 percent year-on-year.

The fall in sales of FIFA 14 is likely the doing of GTA V’s continued popularity, and the game being available on next-gen consoles in November, the month PS4 and Xbox One will launch.

Elsewhere on the chart, Minecraft jumps to third place, PES 14 falls to fourth, and The Last of Us sits at 5th.

Here’s the top 20, courtesy UKIE:

1. FIFA 14
2. Grand Theft Auto 5
3. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
4. Pro Evolution Soccer 2014
5. The Last of Us
6. Disney Infinity
7. Splinter Cell: Blacklist
8. Saints Row 4
9. Diablo 3
10. Rayman Legends
11. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
12. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix
13. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
14. Grand Theft Auto 4
15. Max Payne 3
16. Need For Speed: Most Wanted
17. Skylanders Giants
18. Aliens: Colonial Marines
19. Tomb Raider
20. Animal Crossing: New Leaf

    Good old fifa! never fails to take the top spot. Even tho GTA V was on sale all week and Fifa came out on friday it still managed to take top spot.
    Guessing what you said is true though about why its seen a reduction in sales. the GTA V and PS4 effect will really have had an impact. Not too impressed with FIFA this year, but im hoping its a grower!

    As with many cross-gen titles, I think it was impossible to keep it similar on all platforms and elevate it to new levels. Give it a year, since next year’s entry will be more next-gen-focused than this one, I suppose.
