In 2014 we saw the release of some blockbuster games like Destiny, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, Xbox One) and many other multi-million dollar projects. However, no game was able to compete with EA’s Fifa 15 in UK.
Which I believe is due to football being more than just a sport in UK. It’s sort of like a religion and UK’s love for football has made Fifa 15 the top selling video game and the second best selling entertainment product in the region.
The Entertainment Retailer’s Association shared the top 20 best selling entertainment products in UK for 2014, including movies games and albums. According to the figures revealed by them, Fifa 15 managed to move 2.663 million copies since its release.
For this reason, Fifa 15 is now the leading video game product in terms of sales, going past Call of Duty Advanced Warfare which sits pretty at second place with 1.837 million sales.
However, the overall top selling entertainment product in United Kingdom is non-other then Frozen. Beating Fifa 15 with a margin of 1.34 million sales, Frozen was able to sell 4.012 million copies.
