PS4 exclusives absent from top 20 in UK software sales chart

Chart Trak has just released the first chart of the new year and low and behold, FIFA 14 sits proudly at the top as expected staving off competition from COD Ghosts and Assassin’s Creed IV. What’s interesting to note here is that there are no PS4 exclusive games sitting in the top 20, with the highest position being held by Killzone Shadow Fall at 21 and Knack resting in 30th place. In comparison, Microsoft’s exclusive Forza Motorsport 5 sits at number 11 and Dead Rising 3 at number 13.  We recently posted news of the vast numbers of traded in exclusive games for the PS4 and Xbox One, and perhaps this is why these games aren’t positioned as high as they could be as savvy consumers buy used copies instead.
