FIFA 15 was the best selling game in the UK last year, with games the most lucrative entertainment category overall.
Data released by the Entertainment Retailers Association put FIFA 15’s total sales at 2.66 million units, well ahead of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on 1.84 million units. The only other game to make the entertainment top ten was Grand Theft Auto V, with 1.34 million units.
FIFA 14 took seventh place, Far Cry 4 eighth and Call of Duty: Ghosts ninth. Assassin’s Creed: Unity rounded out the top 10.
LEGO’s endless spinoffs did well too, with The LEGO Movie Videogame charting 14th, LEGO marvel Super Heroes coming 16th and LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham coming 18th. LEGO The Hobbit was 39th, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes 64th, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga 75th, LEGO The Lord of the Rings 86th and LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean 100th. Should make up for The LEGO Movie’s Oscar snub.
