Top 10 UK Games Chart: FIFA 20 Is No.1, Of Course
In an unsurprising result, FIFA 20 is top of the UK all-format physical sales chart in its debut week. EA's sports behemoth was the highest-selling boxed game for the week ending September 28, meaning The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening slips to No.2.
Other new games didn't fare quite so well as FIFA. The Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Quest IX: Echoes of an Elusive Age enters at No.11, while Code Vein debuts at No.13 and The Surge 2 manages a No.35 finish. However, FIFA's launch sent ripples across much of the chart; an Xbox One FIFA 20 bundle that included Gears 5, for example, caused the Xbox-exclusive shooter's sales to soar by 70%.
We enjoyed EA's latest football game here at GameSpot, awarding it an 8/10 in our FIFA 20 review. "Flawed and iterative, but comforting, complete, and compelling, FIFA 20 is as frustrating and as essential as ever," we said. "The Journey and FIFA Street will continue to be missed, but Volta offers a genuinely different option for those who want to dip in and out across FIFA's smorgasboard of game types, while Ultimate Team continues its route to world domination. It's just a shame Career Mode continues to stagnate--even if EA has finally remembered it exists."
