That is alot of FIFA. Methinks perhaps the UK loves soccer/football a bit too much.

Well those FIFA game do bring people in that would normally not consider to buy a console and by doing that it opens the possibility of then checking out other games that they would normally never touch.

true but most my mates and their mates (this is in london) just buy a PS4 for Fifa and those extra games that they purchase doesn't go beyond call of duty or gta. Most of them don't know about God of War, Bloodborne or Horizon Zero Dawn. Some dabbled in Assassins Creed last gen but that's the extent of it. Obviously I do not speak for every PS owner in the UK. But the majority of Londoners don't give a shit beyond Fifa and Call of Duty (GTA being the exception).
