Six weeks and counting: FIFA 14 still leads the UK charts

Usually, the UK charts are interesting. Last year we saw Tomb Raider stay in the top ten for an impressive 25 weeks in a row, albeit 593 weeks less than Square Enix was hoping for. In September, Grand Theft Auto 5 became the UK's fastest-selling game of all time when it notched 2.25 million sales...

FIFA 14 still UK No.1, Mario Party: Island Tour debuts 18th

Hey, UK Charts? Are you... you know... taking care of yourself? I mean, I only ask because it kind of looks like you're wearing almost the exact same stuff you had on last week. And hey, is that Aliens: Colonial Marines in your pocket? Are you sure you want to be carrying that thing around with...

FIFA 14 nets four weeks in a row as UK No. 1, Aliens: Colonial Marines returns

What better encapsulates the tranquility of games retail at the moment: that FIFA 14 is still top of the UK charts, now for the fourth week running and the seventh week in total, or that critical anti-darling Aliens: Colonial Marines is back in the top ten? Albeit that's at bargain bin pricing...

FIFA 14's reign continues in this week's statue-like UK charts

The UK charts start 2014 like they ended 2013, and that's not limited to FIFA 14 extending its rule of the holiday roost. For starters, the same games that comprised last week's top ten feature in this week's. Not only that, but the top seven are exactly the same, with nobody moving a single place....

UK charts: FIFA 14 on top again, a look back at a momentous year

2013 began with FIFA 13 leading the UK charts, and it ends with FIFA 14 crowned No. 1 for the second week in a row. The smart money is on EA Sports' MVP making it a hat-trick next week; the opening week's charts for each of the last three years has had a FIFA at the top. Rather than focusing on...

FIFA 14 is UK's Christmas No. 1

FIFA 14 is this week's UK No. 1, making it a very Messi Christmas in 2013! Okay, we may have used that Messi Christmas gag already - and possibly that image. In our defense, Home Alone 2 is on and we've got orange and cinnamon mince pies. Just t'isn't the season for creativity, especially when...

Call of Duty: Ghosts tops UK charts for third week in a row

"I am the Ghosts of Christmas past," said Call of Duty: Ghosts. "Long past?" inquired Scrooge, observant of the game's familiar nature. "Well, no," Call of Duty: Ghosts replied, a bit embarrassed. "I was the UK's best-selling game last week, and the week before that. This is my third week in...

Gran Turismo 6 first week UK sales around five times less than GT5

Gran Turismo 6 is way off the pace of its predecessor, after debuting in the UK with close to five times less sales than Gran Turismo 5. Yes, the presence of two next-gen consoles is no doubt a factor - also GT5 came out on a Wednesday, and GT6 on Friday - but it's still a concerning performance by...

PlayStation 4 enjoys most successful launch week in UK history

The PlayStation 4 had the best launch week in the UK of any gaming system to date, and in the words of Chart Track it "eclipsed" the Xbox One's sales from the week before. There's no confirmed numbers, but we know the country's previous fastest-seller is the PSP, and it sold 185,000 units across...

UK Charts: Xbox One doubles Xbox 360's opening weekend

The UK kicked off its November next-gen madness with the Xbox One last week, ahead of the PS4's launch across Europe this Friday. No surprises, then, that the country's charts are dominated by a flurry of Xbox One launch games, but stifle that yawn because Chart-Track does have a noteworthy...
