UK Sales Chart: Titanfall Fends off EA’s 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

In a surprising turn of events, EA’s 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil game on PS3 and Xbox 360 didn’t have a strong enough debut to finish first, with Titanfall repeating at #1 instead. FIFA World Cup did manage second place though, and EA’s other recent soccer game, FIFA 14, was close behind in 4th.

Elsewhere, the retail version of Trials Fusion started its run in 7th, while the PS4 release of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn helped the game re-enter the charts at #20.
