Yes! You guessed it! Ashes Cricket 2013 was the best selling video game of 2013 in the UK!

Okay, okay… you got me… the best selling game of 2013 in the UK was in fact Rockstar’s GTA V with a massive 3,670,234 units sold this year! EA’s FIFA 14 comes in at a not-really-that-close second with 2,656,763, and the full lineup looks a little like this:

  • [1] GTA V (3,670,234)
  • [2] FIFA 14 (2,656,763)
  • [3] Call Of Duty: Ghosts (1,991,994)
  • [4] Battlefield 4 (838,869)
  • [5] Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (776,888)

What I find fascinating is the difference in numbers. Rockstar’s GTA V sold over a million more copies than EA’s FIFA 14. Similar statistics for Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 – the former beating the latter by a solid 1,153,125!

Christopher Dring over at MCV expands on this list by including other forms of entertainment, and you know what? GTA V also outsold Skyfall, making it not only the top selling game in the UK in 2013, but also the best selling entertainment product in the UK of last year! Pretty sweet, eh?

See the full entertainment list at this link, and try to pretend Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 isn’t on there…
