FIFA Street Gives EA Top 4 Clean Sweep

19/Mar/2012

EA score a hat-trick with the reboot of ‘FIFA Street’ giving them their third new release in a row to go straight in at No1 (‘Mass Effect 3’ last week and ‘SSX’ the week before).


It’s been a long wait with just over four years since the previous title in the series, ‘FIFA Street 3’, and the reboot has got off to a great start outperforming all the other FIFA Street’s opening week’s sales. EA can also claim to hold all Top 4 positions this week, a feat they’ve only achieved before in weeks 48 and 49 2003 (with FIFA 2004, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, Medal of Honor: Rising Sun and Need for Speed: Underground).

Last week’s No1 and No2 both shuffle down a place with ‘Mass Effect 3’ (-74%) now at No2 and ‘SSX’ (-60%) at No3, followed by EA’s other football franchise, ‘FIFA 12’ (-21%), holding firm at No4. No5 is also a non-mover with Nintendo’s ‘Mario Party 9’ (-35%) and it’s Mario again at No6 this time teaming up with Sonic in Sega’s ‘Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games’ (-10%). Bethesda’s ‘Rage’ (+47%) storms up the chart from No20 to No7 with 505 Games’ ‘Zumba Fitness’ (+15%) also making headway up from No10 to No8. Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed: Revelations’ (+1%) makes it a third week at No9 and Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’ (-4%) rounds off the Top 10 at No10. Also new this week is another reboot of a franchise with Sony’s PS3 ‘Twisted Metal’ debuting at No12.
