FIFA 18 shoots and scores, with 60% of sales on PS4

EA eases us into October with FIFA 18 riding the UK chart high, pushing Destiny 2 to #2 in the process.

Chart-Track reports 60% of FIFA 18’s sales were on PS4 (up from 53% last year, thanks to hardware bundling), and that the PS4/XO versions alone accounted for 97% of sales.

Proving what a colossal seller FIFA is, the individual formats chart reveals that both the Xbox 360 and Switch still versions managed to break the top ten.

FIFA 18 on Switch also managed to take no.1 in the Switch chart.

FIFA 18 hardware bundling shows surprise results elsewhere in the chart – Forza Horizon 3 is back at #3, just days before Forza 7’s launch, while Halo 5 re-enters at #11.

Going back to the top ten, Project Cars 2 only fell a few positions during its second week on sale, falling to #7.

PES 2018 and Pokken Tournament DX both depart the top ten meanwhile, now at #12 and #14 respectively. Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite had a bad week too, dropping to #30.

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony was the only other top 40 entrant, arriving at #36, although One Piece: Unlimited World Red did manage to make #14 in the Switch chart.
