FIFA 14 made its UK debut on Friday September 27th and has gone straight to the top of the boxed PC game chart, knocking Rome: Total War 2 into second place.

EA's latest football game also topped the All Formats chart. 

However, FIFA 14's week-one sales were down 24 per cent in volume compared to FIFA 13's week-one sales made last year. 

UKIE/Gfk Chart-Track said in a statement: "[This was] possibly due to all the money spent last week [when GTA 5 topped the All Format chart] and also perhaps due to the nature of a transitional year, where consumers may be delaying this purchase until PS4/Xbox One versions are available. 

"In terms of eight-format games, only two other titles have been released simultaneously in the same week on eight formats (EA’s FIFA 13 last year and EA’s Need For Speed: Carbon back in 2006, another transitional year)."
