UK Sales Chart: FIFA 17 Breaks Franchise Record, Sells Majority on PS4
In what is likely the first of many #1 finishes to come, FIFA 17 debuted atop the chart last week in the UK, narrowly besting FIFA 13 for the highest week one sales in franchise history and topping FIFA 16’s launch by 16%. As GfK Chart-Track adds, despite the Xbox One S bundles, FIFA 17 sold 53% of its copies on PlayStation 4. The Xbox One version accounted for over 40% of sales, while the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions combined for 6% of the total sales.
Elsewhere on the chart, Forza Horizon 3 debuted in 2nd and outsold Forza Horizon 2 by 12%. Thanks to retailer promotions, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens rose by 127%, while Super Mario 3D World jumped 999% thanks to a price drop.
