And the UK’s Christmas number one is…

FIFA 14. We guess the image above was kind of a giveaway.

It’s EA’s first FIFA to become Christmas number one since FIFA 09, and the publisher’s 14th Crimbo numero uno since the chart began 28 years ago.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is at #2 – Chart-Track claims that FIFA outsold it by a remarkable 17,000 copies.

We did hope that the more deserving Assassin’s Creed IV would become no. 1 off the back of GAME’s current £22.49 deal, but it has to make do with #3.

Battlefield 4 is at #4 and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes at #5.

The rest of the festive top 10 goes like this: GTA V at #6, Just Dance 2014 at #7, NFS Rivals at #8, PlayStation 4 pack-in Killzone: Shadow Fall at #9 and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition at #10.

Remember when we predicted that Just Dance 2014 was going to flop?

Although Nintendo doesn’t haven any titles in the top 10, there are nine Nintendo games elsewhere in the top 40 with the highest of these being Animal Crossing: New Leaf at #17.

The delightful Super Mario 3D World has to settle for #33, down four places this week, while a trio of other Mario games finish off the Christmas chart including a re-entry for New Super Mario Bros. U at #40.
