FIFA 16 manages to outsell both Metal Gear Solid 5 and Destiny: The Taken King in September.
EA Sports’ FIFA 16 continues to reign supreme in UK game sales according to the latest charts via Gfk Chart-Track (which only covers physical game sales). It was also revealed that despite a 6.5 percent drop in sales from last year, FIFA 16’s monthly sales managed to hit 2.67 million unit. It’s sold more than both Destiny: The Taken King and Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain combined at retail in the UK despite having released on September 24th.
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and Destiny: The Taken King occupied the second and third spots for the week followed by Mad Max. Gears of War: Ultimate Edition was in fifth place followed by Until Dawn, Forza Motorsport 6, Disney Infinity 3.0, Grand Theft Auto 5 and Super Mario Maker.
