Call of Duty: Ghosts sits on top of this week’s UK chart like a good boy, becoming the UK’s third fastest selling of the game of the year behind GTA V and FIFA 14.

We’re still unsure how well it has sold when compared to previous Call of Duty titles, but we do have a few curious facts to muster over.

Despite the console itself a couple of weeks away, the PS4 version managed to outsell the Wii U version last week. Not only this, but it sold more than the PS3 versions of both Assassin’s Creed IV and Battlefield 4.

The official breakdown goes like this: 62 per cent of sales on Xbox 360, 34 per cent on PlayStation 3 and 3 per cent on PS4. Wii U and PC counted for less than a single per cent.

With CoD: Ghosts at #1, Battlefield 4 falls to #2 and is then followed by Assassin’s Creed IV, FIFA 14 and GTA V to form the UK’s top 5.

Professor Layton and the Azaran Legacy is the only new entry in the UK top 40, arriving at #13.

New arrivals are few in number in the single-format charts as well, although we do spot Mario & Sonic at the Sochi Winter Games 2014 sliding in at a lowly #10 in the Wii U chart. We genuinely dread to think how few copies have been sold.
