FIFA 14 is UK Xmas number one

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.
