EVERYTHING IS AWESOME AND MADE OF LEGO!

17/Feb/2014

'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, Warner’s 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 ‘Assassin’s 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 EA’s 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).

FIFA 14 has been knocked off the top of the UK charts by The LEGO Movie Videogame.

Warner’s licensed outing is the sixth LEGO game to reach the UK top spot, with the last being LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes last year.

Chart-Track adds that one eighth of the UK Top 40 is made up of LEGO games, with five different titles appearing in the list.

Square Enix’s new RPG Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XXIII manages third in its debut week, falling behind Activision’s Call of Duty: Ghosts which clings to second place.

All of which means former chart-topper FIFA 14 has to settle for fourth. EA’s game is followed by Grand Theft Auto V (5th), LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (6th), Battlefield 4 (7th), Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (8yj), Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition (9th) and Fable: Anniversary (10th).

A wild Wii U game appears

I'M READY! I'M READY!

Could you correct the title? It's the week ending 15th february.

Also can someone explain why so many games got such a substantial boost this week? Makes it look like next gen is falling, when in reality it's just games like GTAV and the current gen versions of Cod and AC being up.

Prediction: The PS4 will outsell the Wii U and 3DS combined

Apparently I won my bet with prinz_valium

Read the paragraphs before the chart!

Corrected title thanks.

You know Final Fantasy is in a bad place when it's crushed by a Lego game.

Only 1 PS4 game on top 10 !

Why isn't Fable Anniversary being tracked on VGCharts? It came out on the 4th and 7th didn't it?

@OP: Dat 360 tho!

Crushed? How much more did Lego sell compared to FFXIII-3?

How much is the RRP for TLoU in UK? it's still pretty high in Poland, maybe a price cut could get it back on the list.

Ohh and PS4 beasting as always, etc. etc.

So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!
