For the second consecutive week, Electronic Arts' hit football video game has taken the top spot in U.K. sales.
Based on the latest Software Charts from Gfk Chart-Track, "FIFA 18" retained its hold of the top spot for video game sales in U.K. The data covered sales for the week ending on Feb. 24. Interestingly, "FIFA 18" has already tasted the top spot several times since it was launched back in September of last year.
A report from Gamespot noted that this is the sixth time the game took the top spot in Gfk Char-Track's weekly charts. Following the game at number two is "Grand Theft Auto V" from Rockstar and Take 2. The game climbed up one spot after ending third the previous week. Zooming up to number three from the previous week's eighth spot is "Call of Duty: WWII" from Activision Blizzard.
Meanwhile, retaining its spot at number four is Capcom's action-RPG "Monster Hunter: World," followed by "EA Sports UFC 3" at the fifth spot. Newcomer "Metal Gear Survive" from Konami, on the other hand, debuted at number six. Staying put at number seven is Sony's "Shadow of the Colossus." Rounding out the top 10 are two Nintendo games, namely, "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" and "Super Mario Odyssey" at the eighth and ninth spots, respectively, and Ubisoft's "Assassin's Creed" at number 10.
Some of the biggest movers for the week include Deep Silver's "Kingdom of Deliverance," which spiraled down from the second spot to number 12; and Nintendo's "Bayonetta 2," which dropped from fifth to the 20th spot. On the other hand, "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" from Activision Blizzard went from number 37 to number 24; while "Minecraft: PlayStation Edition" from Sony climbed to the 25th spot from number 33 the previous week.
The Gfk Chart-Track results only tally the actual physical sales in the U.K. and they do not count the digital sales data, which means the chart does not represent all of the U.K. game sales for the week, a Gamespot report noted.
