Well done FIFA 16! For the second year running FIFA has retained its status as the bestselling game in the UK. And just like 2014, both FIFA titles (15/16) available for sale during the calendar year make the UK top 10.


UK Top Selling Games for 2015


1. FIFA 16 (EA)

2. Call Of Duty: Black Ops III (Activision Blizzard)

3. Fallout 4 (Bethesda)

4. Star Wars: Battlefront (EA)

5. Grand Theft Auto V (Take-Two)

6. Batman: Arkham Knight (Warner Bros.)

7. FIFA 15 (EA)

8. Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Activision Blizzard)

9. Assassin's Creed Syndicate (Ubisoft)

10. Lego Jurassic World (Warner Bros.)


The main competition once again came from Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, with all the other 2015 big hitters in attendance too, including EA's own Star Wars Battlefront. Things were a shade different across the Atlantic though, where FIFA 16 placed 9th overall in the US top selling games of 2015.


Perhaps a shade worrying for football gaming as a whole though was the absence of PES 2016 in the entire UK top 50. Let's face it, competition can only be a good thing for FIFA so it's a shame not to see it in the year end list.


Boxed game sales were also down 6% on 2014, with lots of gamers seemingly preferring to purchase and pre-load digital copies. An unsurprising trend given the number of digital only pre-order content available now, such as FIFA 16's own Ultimate Edition.  


And we all Expect FIFA 17 can also be the top selling game in UK and other areas.
