FIFA 16 continues to be the hottest game in the month it’s released in, fending off two other heavy-hitters.
FIFA 16 is responsible for almost one third of all boxed games sales in the UK during September. The game, which came out on September 24, sold more than Destiny: The Taken King and Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain at retail, both of which came out in the same month.
The details are courtesy of GfK Chart-Track, which notes that monthly sales topped at 2.67m copies for all titles. That represents a 6.5 percent drop, compared to the same period last year.
FIFA 16 managed this spot despite having 7% less week one sales than FIFA 15. PES 2016 is nowhere to be seen in the top ten.
Here are the top ten sellers for September:
- 1- FIFA 16
- 2- Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain
- 3- Destiny: The Taken King
- 4- Mad Max
- 5- Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
- 6- Until Dawn
- 7- Forza Motorsport 6
- 8- Disney Infinity 3.0
- 9- Grand Theft Auto 5
- 10- Super Mario Maker
These numbers of course reflect retail only in the UK, tracked from August 23 to September 26.
