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.
Traditionally, the Week 50 charts are the Christmas charts, but as this year is a 53-week year for the first time since 2009 (thanks to the wonders of the Gregorian calendar), the Christmas chart will be next week instead and this one is just another also-ran.
With that in mind, it’s looking like an interesting challenge: Last year, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was enough to hold FIFA 15 from gaining the top spot in the crucial week. This year, Black Ops 3 has regained the #1 position and looks like it could be strong enough to stay up there long enough… but there’s an EA twin attack lurking at both #2 and #3. Of course, FIFA 16 is the inevitable challenger, currently at #3 (the FIFA franchise is the Christmas #1 record holder, with 8 titles to its name). But then there’s a little game from a galaxy far, far away…
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens around the world in just a few days, and it’s expected to net a few sales for Star Wars Battlefront, which could be enough to catapult this week’s #2 back up into the top spot. We’ll have to wait and see!
