‘Fifa 18’ makes it 3 weeks in a row at No1 in the All Formats Chart, beating Warner’s new release ‘Middle-Earth: Shadow of War,’ debuting in at No2. It’s a similar story to 2014, where ‘Fifa 15’ beat the predecessor of this week’s No2 – ‘Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor’ as both were at No1 and No2 respectively.

EA’s ‘FIFA 18’ takes a second week at No1 and actually has a stronger week 2 than last year because FIFA 17’s week 2 coincided with Take 2’s biggest new release of 2016, which pulled sales away from FIFA (‘Mafia III’ was new at No2 in week 40, 2016 and was the 8th biggest week 1 unit seller of 2016).

As is customary in week 39, EA bring down the curtain on Q3 with the launch of FIFA. ‘FIFA 18’ debuts at No1 and of the 5 versions launched the PS4/Xbox One editions account for 97% of sales units – PS4 alone accounts for 60% (up from 53% last year), helped in part by a varied selection of official ‘FIFA 18’ hard bundles. The Switch version is a first for EA and Nintendo and the PS3/360 versions become legacy editions.
