Day one FIFA 14 bundle powers EA game to top of the charts

First week sales of the Xbox One are double those of the Xbox 360, accounting for 80 per cent of all console hardware sold over the weekend.

Powered by the Xbox One's day one bundle, Electronic Arts' FIFA 14 sailed to the top of the UK charts to become the best selling game, with sales up 328 per cent.

Of the Xbox One exclusive titles, Forza Motorsport 5 was the highest charting, making its debut at 5, behind Call of Duty, Battlefield 4 and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

Capcom's Dead Rising 3 made its next-gen debut at seven, while Nintendo's 3DS title The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds entered the charts at nine. Microsoft and Crytek's Ryse: Son of Rome entered the charts at ten.

Try not to overlook the fact, that Xbox One retail support is very limited in Europe, so what you have here is partly caused by people outside UK importing hardware and games to countries where they aren't officially available yet.

I'm not sure FIFA should really count as a sale. Perhaps if we could find out the number of activations we could actually see what its true sales would have been.

@Wojciech: I was thinking exactly the same thing, although Not sure how profitable that would be with the euro-pound change rate.
