UK Sales Chart: FIFA 15 Accounts for 80% of all Games Sold

September 29, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Proving just how popular the FIFA franchise is, FIFA 15’s debut accounted for 80% of all video games sold at retail in the UK last week, and even more impressive, it made up 87% of the overall revenue. Comparing this to FIFA 14’s first week (adding in the November PS4 & Xbox One launch week), FIFA 15 was about the same in units sold, while revenue was up 6%.

For a breakdown of sales, FIFA 15 didn’t experience the major gap most titles see between new-gen and last-gen, as the PS4/Xbox One combined for 54% and PS3/360 combined for 45%.

Here’s the top 20 selling retail games in the UK for the week ending September 20, 2014, according to GfK Chart-track:

  1. FIFA 15
  2. Destiny
  3. Disney Infinity 2.0
  4. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
  5. Call of Duty: Ghosts
  6. Watch Dogs
  7. The Sims 4
  8. Fantasy LIfe
  9. Minecraft: PS3 Edition
  10. Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare
  11. The Last of Us Remastered
  12. The LEGO Movie Videogame
  13. Hyrule Warriors
  14. Grand Theft Auto V
  15. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
  16. Tomodachi Life
  17. Terraria
  18. Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition
  19. Frozen: Olaf’s Quest
  20. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

Will Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor have any chance of beating FIFA 15’s second week total?
