PlayStation 4 sale transforms EMEA games charts

Vampyr debuts at No.2 as FIFA 18 holds top spot

FIFA 18 was the best-selling game across EMEA for a second consecutive week.

It was the best-selling game both physically and digitally, boosted by recent PR and marketing activity surrounding the World Cup.

The game beat off new competition from Vampyr, Focus Home Interactive's new RPG from Life Is Strange developers Dontnod.

Vampyr's results are missing Xbox One's digital sales - the nature of these charts is that some data may be late coming in and cannot be verified in time. These instances should hopefully reduce as the charts become more frequent - this is only the second EMEA combined digital and physical chart.

This GSD chart is the new charts project from ISFE, run by B2boost. Most major publishers contribute to the charts, but there are some notable absentees such as Bethesda, Nintendo and PUBG Corp.

Also, not all countries contribute retail data to the project yet. Including the UK as GfK currently holds the exclusive rights to retail sales data - this will change from January next year.

However, it's a vast improvement over most available charts, which are typically missing all digital download data. And over time, GSD will become the default charts across the majority of EMEA markets.

PlayStation's pre-E3 sales activity has had an impact on this week's figures, with God of War up from No.5 to No.2, Gran Turismo Sport rising 72 places to No.5 and Horizon Zero Dawn up 56 please to No.8.

There are four PS4 exclusives in the Top Ten, with Detroit: Become Human dropping down to No.6 from No.2 after a week on sale.
