Beats FIFA 14 to chart top by 400 sales

Titanfall moved back to the top spot of the UK software chart this week but by the skin of its mech suit, beating FIFA 14 by less than 400 sales.

The only new entry on the chart this week was Focus Home Interactive's RPG Bound By Flame at 12.

I bet EA doesn't mind which one comes out on top, seeing as they publish both. And Titanfall continueing to stay at or near the top of the charts for eight weeks straight(or two months) is also pretty impressive. I'm curious to see how well it fared here in the US during it's second month.

@Paul I think they do. Remember that Fifa has a budget and so needs to be selling to make that budget back. In this case though the difference is less than 400 sales, though I've stopped caring about chart data when the figures for actual sales have now been hidden behind idiotic excuses.

Japan is still the only chart that sees the healthy and intelligent reasoning behind showing actual figures. If an RPG that everyone thought was good comes out and only sells 2k copies then it's unlikely that any other devs will clone or produce something like that game but, over here it could be 20 sales or 200k sales for a title to get to no.1 causing a very artificial view of what people are actually buying or interested in. Usually during a slow summer. The games in the top ten are actually doing abysmally but, you wouldn't know that and then other AAA titles are withheld because they don't want to clash with what everyone thinks is a blockbuster. It seems to happen every year since the figures were hidden by the likes of Activition, EA and NPD. Ironically this hasn't helped their sales, only hidden the failures until we hear of a studio closing that we all thought was caning it in!
