Strong Debut for Elder Scrolls But Fifa Conjures No1

07/Apr/2014

EA’s ‘FIFA 14’ returns to No1 (+8%) having last been top of the pile in week 6 this year.


The title has still not been out of the Top 6 since launch 28 weeks ago and now has a total of 11 weeks at No1 – a feat that only 4 other titles have managed (‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’, ‘Wii Fit’, ‘Zumba Fitness’ and ‘FIFA: Road to the World Cup 98’). Bethesda debut strongly at No2 with the PC version of ‘The Elder Scrolls Online’ – a first game and 5 years in the making for Zenimax Online Studios, with PS4/Xbox One versions to follow. EA’s Xbox One/PC ‘Titanfall’ holds at No3 (-36%), with an Xbox 360 version coming next week.

Climbing 4 places to No4 is Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ (+35%) and boxed product sales of this game are no doubt spiking due to the launch this week of the second DLC pack ‘Devastation’ on Xbox formats. Konami drop 3 places over last week at No5 with ‘Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes’ (-46%) and Sony’s PS4 ‘Infamous: Second Son’ (-55%) drops 5 places to No6 having held on to No1 for 2 weeks. The only other new release within the Top 40 is Tecmo Koei’s ‘Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Complete Ed.’ debuting at No29 for PS4/Vita.
