UFC Knocks Out Competition

23/Jun/2014

The three week reign of Ubisoft’s record breaking IP ‘Watch Dogs’ is over as ‘EA Sports UFC’ takes the crown in its debut week.


For EA it represents a third No1 title in 2014 alongside FIFA 14 and Titanfall. It’s also their first title in the UFC series following its acquisition from former publisher THQ. ‘Watch Dogs’ (-41%) moves down to No2 while a resurgent ‘Titanfall’ (+10%) is up three places to round off the Top 3. EA claims a total of four Top 10 titles this week with both ‘FIFA 14’ (-9%) and ‘2014: FIFA World Cup Brazil’ (-34%) at No5 and No6. ‘Mario Kart 8’ (-30%) slips down from No4 to No7 but stays ahead of ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ (-13%) which remains at No8. Familiar sights ‘Minecraft: PS3 Edition’ (-22%) and ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ (-8%) hold the No9 and No10 places.

Further down the chart ‘MotoGP 14’ makes its debut at No14. PQube’s title adds PS4 to its roster of formats which helps boost the title to an 8.4% increase over the week 1 sales of its predecessor exactly a year ago.
