UKIE Game Charts, Week 48 2014

We love charts here at Player Attack, and one of the highlights of our week is receiving the latest details from UKIE, who send us the 10 best-selling titles in Britain, as announced by The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment.

We’re not quite sure why the UK is celebrating Black Friday, but the sales event has prompted a 110% increase in sales for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, bringing the FPS back up to the top of the charts (and switching places with GTA V). Also interesting: 67% of the COD sales are on older consoles, while at launch we saw 68% shared between PS4 and Xbox One.

Looking at other games, FIFA 15 saw an 84% sales increase, jumping back up to #2, while sales dropped for Far Cry 4, down to #4. The highest new release this week is, of course, Pokémon Omega Ruby, hitting #7 with 2,400 sales more than Alpha Sapphire. If the two were combined, Pokémon would have comfortably settled into #3, but this year’s combo is still the biggest Pokémon launch ever.

…special mention this week goes to DriveClub, which has catapulted up the charts from #33 to #8 – a whopping 999% increase in units moved. Thanks, Black Friday sales! It’s just a pity the game’s still broken.
