Alright Destiny, you’ve had your fun, but now it’s time to let the more experiences game series take over. FIFA 15’s the first of the regular yearly releases, and it’s straight in at the top spot, after a year in which its predecessor was regularly scrapping it out at the top of the charts.
However, when FIFA 14 arrived on the scene last year, it was necessarily a split release that saw the PS4 and Xbox One versions arriving later, alongside their respective console launches. So, GfK Chart-Track’s estimates are that FIFA 15’s unified launch has boosted sales by 15%, leading to 23% extra revenue. However, when they then added together the various FIFA 14 launches, sales actually came out roughly the same, albeit with a 6% revenue boost.
Last gen isn’t looking too shabby right now, anyway, with 45% of the overall sales heading to the older consoles, 54% to the newer ones, and presumably 1% from the people crazy enough to buy the legacy editions.
The only other new entry this week is Fantasy Life for 3DS, while last week’s newest entries dropped from second to third in Disney Infinity 2.0’s case and from third to thirteenth for Hyrule Warriors.
