‘Watch Dogs’ (-47%) comfortably holds on to No1 for a third consecutive week
It's a quiet time for the industry with gamers distracted by the World Cup, now underway in Brazil. It is therefore not surprising that EA’s ‘2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil’ (+16%) is the Top 10’s highest climber, up from No6 to No2, ahead of ‘Wolfenstein: The New Order’ (-21%) which sneaks up one place to No3. ‘Mario Kart 8’ (-33%) is only a hundred sales behind as it slips from No2 to No4. ‘FIFA 14’ (-26%) doesn’t get the same boost as its World Cup stable mate, but still manages to hold on to No5, while EA’s non-footballing title ‘Titanfall’ (+1%) does well to jump 3 places to No6, perhaps strengthened by reports of it getting a big update this month.
Both Minecrafts are non-movers with the Playstation 3 Edition (-16%) still at No7 and the Xbox 360 Edition (-8%) still teetering at No10. ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ remains a strong Top 10 performer, holding on to No8 with sales only dipping by 11%. In its second week, sales of Square’s ‘Murdered: Soul Suspect’ fall by 52% positioning it at No9. Despite it being a quiet week, there is still room for a new entry with CI Games (formerly City Interactive) debuting at No19 with World War II themed FPS ‘Enemy Front’.
