FIFA beats Elder Scrolls Online to UK #1

ZeniMax Online's debut game charts at number two as FIFA enjoys 11th week on top

EA's FIFA 14 returned to the top of the UK software chart last week, celebrating its 11th week at number one as ZeniMax Online Studios' The Elder Scrolls Online spent its first on the chart in second place.

Of course, Chart Track's data does not include digital sales, so just how indicative TESO's first week performance is of its overall health is still unclear. It was also released on PC alone, so the picture won't be complete until the release of the console version on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Call of Duty: Ghosts enjoyed a spike in popularity due to the release of the "Devastation" DLC map-pack, climbing four places finish the week at number four.

I really do not understand how these charts reflect any relevant information considering it does NOT contain digital sales. Maybe that was true at some point for consoles, but even them now have online stores with easy access purchase. Could someone clarify why these are still relevant ?

The UK is still quite high for physical console sales.

Christian, the HD size is a non-issue for many users - the attach rate for the 360 over it's entire lifecycle was something like 12 games average. Just the fact it's -available- will lead to more downloads, but nobody can be confident in predicting how big an effect that'll have. Access and caps are the more likely culprits, as you said.

To be fair, digital is HUGE when it comes to MMOs, considering that they are PC only, and many of the players already participated in beta and downloaded the game. If those figures don't account for digital sales, then I imagine the actual value would be at least twice whatever they think it is.

I agree with Sergiu, every one i know brought this game via amazon or via elder scrolls online as a digital version..
But losing to a football game is not that hard in europe.
