UK Sales Charts: FIFA 19 is already the biggest game of the year

FIFA 19 PS4 PlayStation 4 UK sales charts 1

FIFA 19 jumped from Marvel Spider-Man's trap to secure the largest 2018 launch in the UK – although physical sales are down 25 per cent year-on-year. It is worth remembering that GfK Chart-Track only takes physical sales into account at the moment, so the digital data may distort things somewhat. The title sold best on the PlayStation 4 with some margin, while the Sony console picked up 64 percent of the share; the Xbox One accounted for only 35 percent, while the Nintendo Switch had to settle for a paltry one percent.

It means of course that the superhero title of Insomniac Games was topped second place after three weeks, although it managed to overtake Far Cry 5 to keep its place as the best-selling second game of the year in Britain. Elsewhere, Shadow of the Tomb Raider still enjoyed a respectable grip, finishing in third place, while Valkyria Chronicles 4 debuted at ninth position, with the bulk of sales thanks to the PS4.
