FIFA 16 was the best-selling game at UK retail last week. EA Sports' football sim is now halfway to matching FIFA 15's unbroken six week run at the top of the all-formats charts.
EA's football sim has enjoyed its fourth straight week at the top of the charts,as Tales Of Zestiria enters the top 10.FIFA 16 is a good game,you can buy a fifa 16 account to try it.
Its big test though is this Friday,when Assassin's Creed Syndicate is released-the first of this Christmas' triple-A blockbusters.
In the meantime Bandai Namco's Tales Of Zestiria did the best out of last week's new releases,reaching number eight in both charts.
The games industry's typically incompetent scheduling meant that several Japanese role-players all managed to come out on the same day last week,with Square Enix's Dragon Quest Heroes relegated to number 12 in the individual formats charts and 19 in the all formats.
Meanwhile,Disgaea 5 hit number 20 in the individual format charts and 27 in the all formats chart. Add in smaller release Dungeon Travelers 2 and anime tie-in Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden and its obvious that many of these games will have been splitting their audience,to the detriment of all.
Rally game WRC 5 came in next,charting at number 12 in the all formats charts. That's apparently only the fourth best debut the series has had,with the highest ranked version in the individual formats charts being the PlayStation 4 at number 21.
The final new entry of the week was Wasteland 2: Director's Cut at number 36 in the all formats chart. It also is a role-playing game,although in this case an old school Western style title.
It's easy to see why none of these games bothered FIFA 16 for the top spot,but as well as Assassin's Creed this week also sees the release of Guitar Hero Live (360/PS3/Wii U/XO/PS4),Just Dance 2016 (Wii/360/PS3/Wii U/XO/PS4),and The Legend Of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (3DS). All of which have a good chance of hitting at least the top 20.
