FIFA 14 tops UK charts despite drop in debut week sales

Mon 30 Sep 2013 8:20am GMT / 4:20am EDT / 1:20am PDT

Sales down 24% compared to last year

Electronic Arts' FIFA 14 has topped the UK charts this week, knocking Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V off the number one spot.

The latest football release scored highly despite debut week sales down 24 per cent compared to last year. Chart Track, which compiles the weekly charts, suggested the transitional year for consoles and last week's huge consumer spend on GTA V have impacted sales of FIFA 14.

Sales of Grand Theft Auto V dropped 83 per cent but even with those numbers the game would have been the 18th biggest title when ranked against week-one releases.

Konami's football rival, Pro Evolution Soccer 2014, saw sales fall 46 per cent.
