'FIFA 17' holds off an impressive launch for 'Final Fantasty XV' to keep the No.1 spot

FIFA 17

An impressive launch for Square Enix’s ‘Final Fantasy XV’ means it debuts at No2 while ‘Fifa 17’ maintains its grip on the crown. Despite missing out on the top spot it’s a great start for Square’s beloved series. It ranks as the second best launch (by our market panel) behind 2010’s ‘Final Fantasy XIII’.

’Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ makes way for the new release dropping a spot to No3. Familiar titles jostle for position with ‘Minecraft: Xbox Edition’ pushing back into the Top 10 at No10. The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim – Special Ed’ benefits from retailer promotions climbing six places to No11.

Ubisoft deliver ‘Steep’ for PS4 and Xbox One with the snowboarding title making an impact at No24. In terms of Winter Sports titles it finds itself at No4 for week 1 panel sales just ahead of SSX Tricky. ‘Super Mario Maker’s dramatic surge back into the Top 40 is driven by the arrival of the 3DS version, which fires it back up to No25. Finally Take 2’s ‘Battleborn’ continues to climb up the All Formats chart, making its way to No40 following recent promotions.
