GTA V claims a fifth UK number one

Despite being both the UK’s fastest selling and biggest selling game of all time, GTA V has only topped the UK chart five times. This week is one of those weeks.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – last week’s no. 1 – falls to #2 while FIFA 15 and Far Cry 4 hold at #3 and #4 respectively.

Then at #5 it’s The Crew, marking the first time Ubisoft’s star striped racer has entered the top five.

Notable risers this week include Shadow of Mordor, rising from #13 to #10, and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag somewhat more significantly leaping from #27 to #11. That’s down to Xbox One bundle sales, apparently.

The biggest fallers of the week meanwhile are WWE 2K15 – falling from #8 to #17 – and Wii U-exclusive Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker toppling all the way from #16 to #40.

There were no new arrivals this week, and only two re-entries – Forza Motorsport 5 at #28 and Mario Kart 8 at #39. Poor old Toad – forever living in Mario’s shadow.
