Last week FIFA 20 topped the EMEAA charts as the best selling game across both digital and physical storefronts. This is FIFA 20’s third consecutive week at the top of the EMEAA charts. The game is a rare example of one title being the most popular by all metrics measured by the ISFE.
The only serious competition for FIFA 20 this week was Grid from Codemasters, while it was Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint last week. However, in both cases FIFA 20 has beaten each game and remained at the top of the chart.
Grand Theft Auto 5 dropped one place from third to fourth this week, as The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening moved ahead of it from fourth place last week. Grid, the latest game in the Codemasters racing series, debuted in fifth place in the combined chart this week.
The only other new title to make it into the top fifty this week was Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair from Playtonic. The Playtonic title entered in forty-ninth place even though critics gave it a positive welcome as yet another great title to be published by Team 17.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition moved from tenth to ninth this week. The game has seen a 10 percent boost in physical sales in the UK, which is thought to be attributed to growing interest from Mario Kart Tour and the growing install base of Nintendo Switch Lite owners.
God of War saw a boost, rising from fifteenth to tenth in the chart. The game has seen some promotional pricing recently, which will have helped boost sales as more consumers pick up the game before the holiday season. The game is also part of the Only on PlayStation Collection, which brings together some of the best PlayStation exclusives and offers them with some brand new packaging, at a much lower price. This version of God of War has also most likely helped boost sales.
