Drama! EA Sports has swanned in with FIFA 14 and grand theft charted the top spot from Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto V in the UK all format chart. The crime spree sandbox has to make do with 2nd place.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition was 3rd, followed by PES 2014 now 4th. Splinter Cell: Blacklist slinkies down 7th, along with Saints Row IV and Diablo III 8th and 9th. Rayman Legends climbs 10th.

Had Rockstar released a PC version, they would have had the number one spot.

No. PC simply doesn't account for that many sales on non-MMO games. More likely everyone got their copy of GTA5 in the first week.

GTA4 is still #14. hehe
