FIFA 14 has unexpectedly re-taken the top spot of the UK chart, keeping The Elder Scrolls Online at bay.
Bethesdaâ€™s PC RPG – due out on PS4 and Xbox One later this year – has to make do with #2. Itâ€™ll be interesting to see where it is next week – Diablo III: Reaper of Souls entered at #6 last week but now sits at #37. Of course, Chart-Track doesnâ€™t include sales via Blizzardâ€™s Battle.net portal.
So, why is FIFA 14 back at #1? Itâ€™s likely to be a combination of a drop in price at one of the major retailers (GAME, perhaps) and the fact that the World Cup isnâ€™t far off.
With the official World Cup 2014 game out next week, it could be the last time it sits on top of the chart.
EA’s soccer sim has had a bloody good run – it hasnâ€™t left the top 6 since being released 28 weeks ago, and has a grand total of 11 weeks at #1. That’s a feat only four other games have managed – Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Wii Fit, Zumba Fitness and EAâ€™s own FIFA: Road to the World Cup 98.
Titanfall remains at #3 – and with the 360 version finally arriving on Friday, it could very well become #1 again next week – and then at #4 itâ€™s Call of Duty: Ghosts, up four places. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes finishes off this weekâ€™s UK top five.
inFamous Second Son – last weekâ€™s chart topper – now sits at #6.
Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Complete Edition on PS4 is the only new arrival in the top 40, hacking its way in at #29.
My bad – World Cup 2014 is out next week. Thursday (?) according to Amazon.
