FIFA 21 has had some great discount-driven weeks lately, and it looks like EA aren't letting up as Black Friday and Cyber Monday results paint a glaring image of their football sim.

You could argue that FIFA 21 stole some of Activision's wind, knocking Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War off its (very short-lived) perch . Granted, Treyarch's shooter held on against EA's 121 per cent sales increase, but gave way after FIFA 21 jumped another 35 per cent the next week. 

Unfortunately for FIFA 21, sales increases have stopped during the week, but on the upside - the 37 per cent drop was enough to keep it nailed to first place. PlayStation 5 version is said to have performed badly, although it shouldn't be surprising considering that PS4 players upgraded online.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War sales took a sales hit of only 3 per cent, which is impressive for a nearly month-old game, but not enough to take the lead.

With Microsoft and Sony struggling to meet the demand for next-gen consoles, Nintendo once again capitalised with increased sales on Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Minecraft for Switch, etc.
