UK retailers have some incredible discounts at the moment – GAME has been selling Xenoblade: Chronicles and RAGE for £9.98 while yesterday Morrisons reduced half a dozen 3DS games to £7 a pop.

We’ll have to wait until next week though to see how the sales have affected the UK chart, as this week’s UK top 40 only takes us up to 24th December.

There’s a bit of a shake around in the top ten. Most significantly, FIFA 12 is back on top while the Christmas number one – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – now resides at #8. There’s a new entry at #10 too – EA’s new hope Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Rayman Origins is doing much better now that the price has been cut to around £20 – it’s now at #19, up from #25. Pre-Christmas price cuts for Sonic Generations have also helped Sega’s platformer with the blue blur dashing up from #19 to #15.

We’ll also be interested to see how Nintendo’s Boom Street on Wii does next week, as Nintendo rather curiously pulled the release date forward from early January to the end of December. Early reviews haven’t been too bad including a 7 from gamesTM.
