EA remain at No1 this week with ‘Titanfall’ (-28%) taking a second successive week thanks to the recent release of the Xbox 360 version
Titanfall makes it 3 weeks at No1 in total, the other coming at launch in week 11 on Xbox One). The highest new entry at No2 is EA’s ‘2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil’ on just 2 core versions of Xbox 360 and PS3. This is the 6th FIFA World Cup game from EA since they acquired the rights in 1996 and began tying in with World Cups from 1998 – those of you with maths skills will note that 1998 to 2014 is just 5 World Cups – the reason being that EA published 2 World Cup games around the 1998 event (‘Road to the World Cup 98’ and ‘World Cup 98’).
Warner drop from No2 to No3 with ‘LEGO The Hobbit’ (-12%) and EA’s ‘FIFA 14’ also drops one place from No3 to No4 (-8%). Ubisoft take the second highest new entry at No7 with ‘Trials Fusion’ and there’s a re-entry at No20 for Square Enix thanks to ‘Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn’ which launches this week on PS4 - previously launched on PS3/PC back in September 2013.
