Even with EAâ€™s World Cup tie-in released way ahead of the first kick off, sales of FIFA 14 show no sign of slowing.
Itâ€™s the UKâ€™s number one yet again, making it the 12th week it has taken the top spot. This is actually an all-new record for EA – the previous best was FIFA: Road to World Cup â€™98 with 11 weeks.
Titanfall drops to #2, and then at #3 itâ€™s a new arrival – Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition. With the Xbox 360 version currently at #3 and the PS4 and PS Vita iterations not far off, we could potentially see a UK top five comprised of different versions of Minecraft at some point.
2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil finishes off this weekâ€™s UK top five.
Kirby Triple Deluxe is only other new entry in the top 40. The pink hued dude arrives at a respectable #16.
Last weekâ€™s chart arrival Bound By Flame falls from #12 to #19. Considering the mixed reviews it has been receiving – everything from 7.5/10 to 1/5, according to Metacritic – we thought it may have dropped further than that.
We imagine that the majority of people interested in Spider-Man 2 chose to download it from the Xbox Marketplace – where it was available at launch – rather than wait for the belated retail release. Either that or the mediocre reviews have put people off. Which is highly likely, in fairness.
