Fifa 17 has broken the series’ record for launch week sales

by on October 3, 2016


Until now, Fifa 13 has held the title for best launch week sales but an 18% increase in sales over last year’s Fifa 16 saw the new entry taking the top spot. Great news for EA given last year saw a 7% drop in sales over Fifa 15.

53% of those record breaking sales came from Sony’s Playstation 4, with 41% sold on Xbox One and the remaining 6% spread across PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

Not a bad week for Microsoft then as, Xbox One exclusive Forza Horizon 3, took second place in the charts.

Last weeks top 10 were:

1. Fifa 17
2. Forza Horizon 3
3. Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens
4. BioShock: The Collection
5. XCOM 2
6. PES 2017
7. Destiny: The Collection
8. Rocket League
9. NBA 2K17
10. GTA5
