Ukie Week 48 2013 UK Video Games Charts

Sony’s PS4 has well and truly landed, becoming the fastest selling video game console in UK history.  It overturns the 8 year record held by the original PSP and eclipses the launch week sales of both PS3 and Xbox One.  ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ (+33%) returns to No1 outselling ‘FIFA 14’ (-0%) by just over 6,000 units this week.  After being heavily boosted by the Xbox One Day 1 Edition bundles last week, ‘FIFA 14’ has to settle for second place in the All Formats Chart despite strong sales on PS4.  ‘Battlefield 4’ (+85%) holds on to No3 ahead of top selling PS4 exclusive title ‘Killzone: Shadow Fall’ at No4.  The official PS4 Killzone hardware bundles help give Sony’s title the edge over EA in the PS4 chart with ‘FIFA 14’ at No2 and ‘Battlefield 4’ at No3, while ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ and ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’ sit at No’s 4 and 5 respectively.  Every title in the All Formats Top 10 is on PS4 apart from ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (+92%) at No7 and ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ (+155%) at No10.  All Top 10 titles increase sales this week with only sales of FIFA 14 remaining flat. ‘Assassin’s Creed IV’ (+19%) drops one place to No5 ahead of ‘Lego Marvel Super Heroes’ (+39%), a non-mover at No6.  It might not be on the latest formats, but sales of ‘GTA V’ still jump by 92% this week, helping it climb one place to No7.  However, PS4 software sales have certainly helped ‘Need for Speed: Rivals’ (+159%) which jumps into the Top 10, up from No13 to No8.  ‘Just Dance 2014’ (+127%) is also out on PS4, but it’s a rise in sales on Wii that propels it into the Top 10, up from No14 to No9.  It looks like Black Friday retailer promotions have been working their magic on certain titles with ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ also back in the Top 10, up from No16 to No10.  Other than Killzone, there are three more new titles that make appearances in the Top 40 this week: PS4 exclusive ‘Knack’ debuts at No13, ahead of ‘Super Mario 3D World’ on Wii U at No14 and ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us – Ultimate Edition’ at No38.
