The final pre-festive Gaming Chart has been announced with EA’s popular football sim FIFA 14 being crowned the 2013 Christmas number one.
Available across both current and next-gen consoles, FIFA 14 has seen off competition from a range of high-profile first-person shooters and GTA 5, a game which earlier this year became the biggest entertainment launch of all time.
With EA having now accounted for 14 of the 28 recorded Gaming Chart Christmas number ones, FIFA 14 has become the eighth member of the FIFA franchise to hold top honours in the UK All Format Gaming Chart over the holiday season.
While Activision’s Call of Duty franchise has recorded a handful of Christmas number ones in recent years, the latest offering, Call of Duty: Ghosts has been beaten down into second place by FIFA 14. Mixing up the leading publishers, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag has rounded out the festive top three.
With EA featuring again in fourth with the issue hit Battlefield 4, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes has completed the top five for the highest selling games for the week ending December 21.
Although GTA 5 has slumped to sixth following its chart topping sales earlier in the year, Just Dance 2014 has held firmly onto seventh spot.
Rounding out the week’s, and Christmas, top 10, Need for Speed Rival and the PS4 exclusive Killzone Shadow Fall have lined up in eighth and ninth spots respectively while Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is in tenth.
