UK Charts – EA Still Dominant

EA has had the charts sewn up for the past few weeks, what with their FIFA Street reboot and the galactic adventures of Mass Effect 3.

This week is no different, with Street still holding on to the top spot despite shedding 44% in sales and Mass Effect 3 standing off, afraid to make a tackle. Tiger Woods further strengthens EA’s chart presence at third before Capcom’s Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City makes an appearance, dropping to fourth.

  1. I never thought I’d say this but I might consider picking up FIFA Street when it hits the bargain bin. Well done EA.

  2. Have EA taken their number 1 publisher spot back from Activision yet?

    • I was thinking about this the other week. I think EA is still a bigger publisher in terms of output, it’s just the phenomenon of CoD (and, in the past, Guitar Hero) that stretches Activision ahead in terms of revenue.

      Battlefield 3 built on the footholds of Medal of Honor and gave EA a firm base to start chipping away at the CoD dominance though so I think this year might be the year that EA’s larger catalogue of top notch games, plus their growth in the autumn FPS battle, puts them back on top.

      • Not to mention it’s Activision-Blizzard, isn’t it? A few behemoths under that branch of the Activision tree there.
        Add in CoD, it gets tight.
        I think.

  3. I currently own 5 of those and 2 are EA games.
    Tempted by Fifa Street too!

  4. Tuffcub has worked his magic on the thumbnail image there I assume

  5. Didn’t even know Silent Hill Downpour had been released – it had looked promising about 12 months ago, but then some more recent footage (and after a further delay I think) it didn’t look that good. I suspect if I did want to pick this up, it will be really cheap within 2-3 months.

    Pleased for Fifa Street as I really enjoyed the demo.

  6. Good 2012 start for EA, the last month or 2, has been good for them

  7. 12, 4…

    *facepalm

    • You are right to facepalm there – That’s not how counting works!

  8. Is that 6 EA games in the top 10?
    Im ashamed to say I only own 2 of the games on the list. Only bought one game this year.

  9. Well played EA, I’m enjoying Mass Effect 3, great game ^_^

  10. I don’t own any of those … I need to get back into it.
