Ukie Week 40 2013 UK Video Games Charts

‘FIFA 14’ remains at No1, holding off ‘GTA V’ for a second week as the gap between the two closes to around 31K units.  Sales of ‘FIFA 14’ are down by 68%, a slightly better drop than its predecessor  ‘FIFA 13’ whose sales fell by 72% after launch.  ‘GTA V’ (-34%) has to settle for No2, but can content itself with the knowledge that after just 3 weeks on sale it has already eclipsed GTA IV’s lifetime total to become the 12th biggest selling game of all time.  It’s even more impressive in terms of revenue, as ‘GTA V’ now occupies the No5 spot behind 4 Call of Dutys, almost equalling the total of ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’.  Despite 4 new releases in the Top 10 there is still a large sales gap between the Top 2 and the rest of the chasing pack.  Codemasters/Namco Bandai have this week’s highest new entry with the multi-format ‘F1 2013’ debuting one place ahead of Nintendo’s ‘The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker’ which re-appears at No4 thanks to an enhanced HD version for Wii U.  The other 2 newcomers are ‘NBA 2K14’ at No7 and ‘Just Dance 2014’ at No9.  Half the Top 10 this week is made up of sequels to games that were in the Top 10 the same week last year.  Two non-sequels, ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ (+4%) and ‘Disney Infinity’ (+22%) are the only Top 10 titles to increase in sales this week with the kid-friendly duo charting at No5 and No6 respectively.  ‘Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist’ (-23%) slips one place to No8, while ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2014’ (-45%) falls 6 places to No10.
