'FIFA 18' sweeps straight in at No.1

FIFA18

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. 

Activision’s ‘Destiny 2’ drops to No2 after 3 weeks at the top.  Microsoft’s ‘Forza Horizon 3’ climbs 6 places to No3 driven by many hardware/software bundles that also offer ‘FIFA 18’.   2K/Take 2 drop one place to No4 with ‘NBA 2K18’ whilst Rockstar/Take 2 move up one place to No5 with ‘GTA V’. 

Bandai Namco debuted at No2 last week with ‘Project Cars 2’ and this week fall to No7.  Microsoft’s ‘Halo 5: Guardians’ re-enters the chart at No11 thanks to some heavy hardware/software bundling linked to FIFA.  The only other new release to enter the Top 40 this week is NIS America’s PS4/Vita ‘Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony’ at No36.
