There aren't many games capable of dethroning Grand Theft Auto 5 as the UK Number 1, but FIFA 14 is definitely one of them. EA's soccer sim dispossessed GTA 5 as it was always going to do, but Rockstar's second week sales equate to the 18th biggest if ranked against all first week sales; that's despite a 83 percent drop from last week.

That gives you an idea of just how big a deal FIFA 14 is, although that's with a 24 percent drop in first week sales compared to last year's FIFA 13. Chart Track wagers the money spent on GTA V last week might be a factor, but we suspect FIFA 14 being a freebie with Xbox One Day One pre-orders in Europe has more to do with it.

Other games aren't stupid enough to take on the FIFA behemoth, especially a week after GTA V came out, so the rest of the charts is pretty quiet. Nonetheless, you can check out the top ten after the break.



Top 10 UK Software Sales (All Formats); week ending September 28:

  1. FIFA 14
  2. Grand Theft Auto 5
  3. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
  4. Pro Evolution Soccer 2014
  5. The Last of Us
  6. Disney Infinity
  7. Splinter Cell: Blacklist
  8. Saints Row 4
  9. Diablo 3
  10. Rayman Legends
