FIFA 15 has debuted at number one with a similar performance to that of its predecessor, FIFA 14.
The latest version of the football game, managed a total increase in revenue of 6% from its predecessor, according to Chart Track. The company totalled up the total launch week sales of FIFA 14, which unlike this year’s version saw the PS4 and Xbox One versions released separately from the other versions (they came out with the new consoles in November), and found a similar amount of unit sales for the two games.
FIFA 15 accounted for a total of 80% software unit sales this week, and totalled a whopping 87% of all revenue.
Destiny has to make way, and settles into second this week, whilst Disney Infinity 2.0 slips to third place.
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition climbs two places to fourth, with Call of Duty: Ghosts following suit, up two to fifth this week.
