In case you have no idea as to what “EMEAA” means, it’s an abbreviation for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Australia. This chart — like the U.S. NPD chart, the UKIE chart, and Famitsu — covers games played in said regions, and it looks like FIFA 20, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and GTA V are the top three games.
It looks like Rockstar is still laughing all the way to the bank like a mad man thanks to the success that GTA V brings to the dangerous and controversial company known as Take-2 Interactive — the parent company over 2K and Rockstar. Unsurprisingly, the game takes third place.
On the topic of controversy, Activision and Infinity Ward knows how to stir up the hornet’s nest and have done so with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Additionally, the game that is no stranger to raising eye-brows snags second place on the EMEAA charts.
And one of the biggest names known for loot-boxes and microtransactions (which Star Wars: Battlefront 2 also contends for) is now at the top spot of the EMEAA charts. Yes, Electronic Arts, better known as EA, seems to have a stronghold on Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Australia, given that the company can keep hitting the number one spot over and over as per gamesindustry.biz.
With all of that said, the top ten best-selling games according to digital and physical sales in EMEAA are up for the week ending December 1st, 2019:
- | 4 FIFA 20
- | 3 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
- | 7 Grand Theft Auto V
- | 5 Pokemon Sword
- | 2 Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
- | 8 Luigi’s Mansion 3
- | 13 Spider-Man
- | 6 Pokemon Shield
- | 9 Need for Speed: Heat
- | 11 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
The first number indicates the place the game landed for this chart. The second number reveals last week’s position.
Lastly, Pokemon Sword takes fourth place, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order snags fifth, Luigi’s Mansion 3 follows after EA’s latest Star Wars game, Spider-Man takes seventh place, like its controversial sibling Pokemon Shield is on the list, and after that game comes Need for Speed: Heat in ninth and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
