UK Charts 19/05/14 – Titanfall Falls As FIFA Rises To The Top

Could it be that Titanfall’s recent dominance of the UK charts is coming to an end? The game has had but a single brief interruption to its time at the top over the past month, and then only to the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. However, it falls from the top spot this week, not to a new challenger, but to the dogged veteran that is FIFA 14.

FIFA 14 has now set a record for the number of weeks a FIFA game has spent at the top of the charts, with a sustained popularity as the football season closes and we approach the World Cup in Brazil this summer. However, this was generally a week of decline, without a major blockbuster release to grab people’s attentions and tempt them into opening their wallets. The next few weeks should put paid to that, but the only notable launch was that of Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition, which popped into 3rd place ahead of the much older Xbox 360 version.

  1. Yawn

  2. I’d be much more interested in a chart of downloadable games. There’s never anything surprising in the retail chart. Admittedly, getting this info out of Sony, Microsoft, whoever is another thing.

  3. Has Colonial Marines finally been banished from the charts? I think they made more copies than there are 360’s/ps3’s.

    • Down at 31, apparently, hanging around like a stale fart.

      • Ha ha, my local Asda has been selling it for £5 for well over 6 months at least. Eventually everyone will have bought a copy.
