Call of Duty: Ghosts and FIFA 14 Top Christmas Sales Charts in the U.K.
- Updated: December 30, 2013
Video games have always been a hot commodity when it comes to holiday gifts; and sales charts for Christmas week are often telling of the video game industry as a whole. This year, in the United Kingdom, there was a split-tie between FIFA 14 and Call of Duty: Ghosts, for best-selling title. If you’re wondering how that could possibly be, it’s because FIFA 14 was the best-selling game, accounting for sales across all of the platforms that it was released on, but that the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty: Ghosts was the singular best-selling title of the holiday week.
The other nine games rounding out the best individual format chart, are, in order, FIFA 14 for the Xbox 360, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag for the Xbox 360, Just Dance 2014 for the Wii, FIFA 14 for the PlayStation 4, Grand Theft Auto V for the Xbox 360, Killzone: Shadow Fall for the PlayStation 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts for the PlayStation 3, FIFA 14 for the PlayStation 3, and Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 3.
On the all-formats chart, Call of Duty: Ghosts was in second place. The remaining eight titles, in order, were Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Lego Marvel Super Heroes, Grand Theft Auto V, Just Dance 2014, Need For Speed Rivals, Killzone: Shadow Fall, and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.
It has been reported that leading up to Christmas, both Call of Duty: Ghosts and FIFA 14 saw an increase in sales – but that FIFA’s increase was larger (18 percent compared to 7 percent.) It’s also worth noting that Assassin’s Creed IV saw an increase of as high as 92 percent, owing to promotions offered by retailers.
