Call of Duty: WWII claims a fifth week at no.1

The UK top five remains unchanged this week, despite a 24% decrease in sales after Black Friday.

This means Call of Duty: WWII celebrates a fifth week at the top of the chart, putting it on par with Activision’s own Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy – the previous record holder for weeks held at no.1 in 2017.

Could Call of Duty claim a Christmas no.1? It’s highly likely – PUBG on Xbox One is the only remaining big-name release of 2017. We shouldn’t rule out FIFA 18, however, and there’s also chance that The Last Jedi fever could propel Star Wars Battlefront II up the chart.

Going back to the here and now, FIFA 18 saw a 30% dip in sales, remaining at #2. Popular PS4 pack-in Gran Turismo Sport is at #3, Star Wars Battlefront II holds onto #4, with sales down 33%, while AC Origins is at #5.

Super Mario Odyssey, Forza 7, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, GTA V and Crash Bandicoot claim positions #6 through to #10.

Sony’s Knowledge is Power remains just outside the top ten, rising from #16 to #11 to this week. Fellow new release Hidden Agenda remains in the top 20 too, now at #16.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was the top 40’s only new release, entering at #19 – 9 places higher than the Wii U’s Xenoblade Chronicles X.

Sticking with Nintendo, the Switch top fifty (!) sees a fair few new arrivals. LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 made #9, Gear.Club Unlimited parked up at #32, Super Putty Squad debuted at #38, Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack entered at #42, while Stern Pinball Arcade bounced in at #46.
