UK Video Game Charts: FIFA 14 Broken by LEGO
The Lego Movie Videogame has stopped FIFA 14's #1 dominance over the last few months in the UK All Formats chart (compiled by Chart-Track) showing the immense power of the tie-in/cross-media deal.

Here's what Chart-Track has to say: "The Lego Movie Videogame kicks FIFA 14 (-3%) off the top of the All Formats Chart to become the 6th different Lego game to reach No1, the last one being Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes back in W29 2012.

"Launched to coincide with the release of the film, Warnerís title sells 15,000 more units this week than the price-promoted Call of Duty: Ghosts (+23%), which just holds on to No2 ahead of newcomer Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XXIII at No3. FIFA 14 has to settle for 4th place, ahead of even more price-promoted titles: Grand Theft Auto V (+47%) at No5 and Assassinís Creed IV: Black Flag (+47%) at No8. There are two Lego games in the Top 10 this week with Lego Marvel Super Heroes (+16%) dropping one place to No6 (joined by a new DS version).

"Battlefield 4 (+4%) remains EAís 2nd best selling title this week, a non-mover at No7, while the Top 10 is rounded off with the seemingly ever-present Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition (-4%) at No9 and Fable Anniversary (-56%) at No10. 1/8th of the Top 40 is made up of Lego titles with 5 different Lego games charting this week (the others being: Lego Batman 2 at No19, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga at No 22 and Lego The Lord of the Rings at No27)."
