To celebrate fifteen years in the business, Amazon UK have revealed their all-time top ten bestselling video games.
Although exact sales figures were not released, unsurprisingly it’s the Call of Duty and FIFA franchises which dominate the multi-platform chart.
However, the game taking fourth place is ridiculously impressive, namely Grand Theft Auto V. The title was released less than a month ago and is surely set to displace the elderly Modern Warfare 2 from the retailer’s top spot if sales continue at their current brisk pace.
Another unexpected entry is Zumba Fitness, then tenth best-selling game in Amazon UK’s history.
“Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto and FIFA are three of the largest entertainment franchises in the world, so it’s no surprise to see them dominating the top ten best-selling games chart,” said Amazon’s Ketu Patel, Video Games & Software Category Leader. “The success of Skyrim suggests that there is a real appetite for epic fantasy games, whilst Zumba Fitness’s appearance in tenth place shows just how big Nintendo Wii’s fanbase is in the UK.”
Here is the list in full:
1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
2. Call of Duty: Black Ops
3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
4. Grand Theft Auto 5
5. Call of Duty: Black Ops II
6. FIFA 10
7. FIFA 13
8. FIFA 12
9. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
10. Zumba Fitness
I have just one question: What was wrong with FIFA 11?
