FIFA 18 was released last Friday on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch and as you might imagine it shot straight to the top of the UK charts, remarkably knocking Destiny 2 off its perch.
It was also revealed, according to industry experts at GamesIndustry.biz that the PS4 edition of FIFA 18 had accounted for 60% of all FIFA 18 copies sold in the UK.
In addition, the Xbox One took more than a third of all sales and combined the PS4 and Xbox One accounted for 97% of all FIFA 18 units shifted in the UK.
“For all the excitement surrounding the Switch version, the Nintendo SKU took less than 3% of sales – especially since legacy Xbox 360 and PS3 copies were also available.” explained the website.
Still, you’d be hard pushed to argue that FIFA 18 has been anything but another massive success for EA.
The only drawback is that it’s unlikely to be sold on the cheap and certainly not for anything under £50, not unless you can wait it out and follow our advice from yesterday to pick up the game in November sales.
However, there is a way to get over £10 off the RRP for the game TODAY. And no, this doesn’t involve eBay or some market seller from Amazon.
