Publisher EA claims 14th seasonal No.1 in 28 years

Electronic Arts' FIFA 14 is the Christmas number one in the UK, a position the series has not held since 2008.

Since the charts first began being recorded 28 years ago, EA has claimed the coveted Xmas number one spot 14 times. But in the past five years that spot has been largely occupied by publisher Activision's Call of Duty franchise.

In the weekend before Christmas, sales of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag rose 92 per cent and Take-Two's Grand Theft Auto V 94 per cent.

Curious as to how big the boost the game gave to the X1 over the holidays.

@Adam
because the secret underground cadre of grandmothers, who have been trying to expose fake gratitude with horrible pairs of socks for decades, has now entered the digital age.

The only version of the Xbox One in stock at amazon till yesterday was the bundle with Fifa 14. Today they have the normal one, too.

Christian: Are games in all price ranges taken into account when calculating salesout figures? Here in Finland, games under 20eur are not included, so only midprice and fullprice games.
