UK Video Game Charts: FIFA Tackled by Lara Croft
The AAA UK video games charts compiled by Chart-Track rumbles on with all the momentum of a Xmas-pudding stuffed, rigor mortised dinosaur in a tarpit; Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (which you know won't be) has ousted FIFA... 14.

Thank the lords of gaming for Indy developers. Here's what Chart-Track has to say. "Square-Enix's Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition debuts at No1 as a next-gen PS4/XB One re-launch of last years Tomb Raider re-boot (debuted in week 10, 2013 as what turned out to be the fourth biggest week 1 seller on the All Formats in 2013).

"EA's FIFA 14 (-4%) drops to No2 and is less than 500 sales behind. Given the scarcity of releases at this time of year, FIFA 14 will be hoping to re-take No1 next week which would give the title entrance to the small elite club of products that have aquired 10 weeks at No1 on the All Formats Chart (currently 10 titles).

"The rest of the Top 10 remains pretty much unchanged, with Activision's Call of Duty: Ghosts down 1 place at No3 (+19%), EA's Battlefield 4 down 1 place at No4 (-5%) and Warner's LEGO Marvel Super Heroes also down 1 place to No5 (+11%)."
