Everything changes but the chart

Car windscreens aren’t the only thing feeling the wrath of winter – the UK top five is frozen too. A tenuous link, we know.

This means FIFA 15 is the UK’s number one yet again. Last week saw it take the top spot for the first time in six weeks.

Just for those who missed last week’s chart, EA’s soccer sim is then followed by Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, GTA V, Far Cry 4 and LEGO Batman 3.

The Crew entered at #6 last week. That’s now at #11. Just Dance 2015 and Destiny meanwhile re-enter the top ten at #6 and #9 respectively.

Price cuts have seemingly helped WWE 2K15 and The Evil Within rise back up too; the former is up seven places to #12 while the latter twelve places to #16.

It appears Nintendo’s latest paring of Pokemon are on the slippery slope down the top 40 as both have now departed the top 20. Disney Infinity 2.0 is on the descent too, falling all the way from #15 to #26.

As for new entries, the retail version of Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris made #17 in the PS4 chart while The Penguins of Madagascar entered at #24 in the Wii chart.

Next Monday’s chart will reveal the UK’s Christmas number one. Unless GAME significantly cuts the prices of GTA V or Far Cry 4 later this week, expect either FIFA 15 or Call of Duty to take the annual festive crown.

Never underestimate the power of a GAME price drop – that’s what helped Skyrim to become Christmas number one back in 2011.
