Call of Duty: Ghosts is the UK’s number one for the third week running and the fifth time since launch. It was very nearly toppled by FIFA 14 however, with just 600 copies between the two.
As we predicted a few weeks ago, sales of the surprisingly good Need for Speed Rivals have increased during the run-up to Christmas. EA’s racer was at #11 last week but now sits at #7, whereas Gran Tursimo 6 has shifted down from #8 to #10.
Killzone: Shadow Fall has left the top 10, but it may be back next week with Sony promising more PlayStation 4 consoles available in time for Christmas.
Knack meanwhile is down from #18 to #31 and – praise be – is no longer outselling Super Mario 3D World which is at #29.
After looking like they were about to depart the top 40, the ‘big three’ Xbox One-exclusives have all risen this week – Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5 are both up a respectable #11 places while Ryse: Son of Rome is up from #34 to #30.
Finally, Aliens: Colonial Marines sneaks back into the chart at #33. You can bet your bottom dollar on this being due to GAME bundling it with Xbox 360 consoles in an attempt to shift surplus copies. It’s also £4.99 to purchase in-store. Hopefully not many people will find it stuffed in their Xmas stocking.
