FIFA 15 Holds off Mordor and Forza in this Week's Charts

2 min read

FIFA 15 survived a three-way attack to score a second week as the UK No. despite a drop of 70% in sales, it was the top choice. 1. EA's soccer game was able surpass multi-platform action RPG Middle-earth, Shadow of Mordor and Xbox-only racer Forza Horizon 2, and porta-brawler Super Smash Bros 3DS. It placed third, second, and fourth in each of the three categories. While the trio of new games couldn't topple the popularity of the UK's FIFA (and let's be honest only a handful of games could) however, they were able to outdo Destiny the Bungie shooter, which slipped from second to fifth in its fourth week of sales.

With the exception of the PS4 retail edition of Minecraft (which UK databod Chart Track indicates as a different platform for Minecraft: PlayStation Edition), the other new release that ranked in the top 40 was Crimes and Punishments: Sherlock Holmes in 27th. Chart Track does not release sales figures, but it does release some platform differences for the biggest hits of the week. For instance the Shadow of Mordor split was 56 percent PS4 and 41 percent Xbox One, Xbox One, and 3 percent PC (that does not include downloads) and Forza Horizon 2 had a 73: 27 ratio between Xbox One 360 and Xbox 360.
