FIFA 14 Wins the UK Christmas Number 1 Battle

EA’s FIFA 14 game has  has claimed the Christmas No.1 spot on the UK all formats games chart ahead of Call of Duty and Assassins Creed 4.

EA games have now accounted for 14 of the 28 recorded Gaming Chart Christmas number ones in the UK and FIFA 14 id the eighth FIFA game to win the converted No 1 spot. The last FIFA game to top the chart at Christmas was 2008’s FIFA 09. Call of Duty games have dominated the charted since then but neither CoD: Ghost or  GTA 5 could topple FIFA this year althought GTA 5 was released back in September and at the time broke all games sales records.

FIFA’s win was helped by the fact is is available on both the current generation and next generation consoles as well as PC. Notably Killzone Shadow Fall was the only next generation exclusive to make the top 10.
