Advanced Warfare becomes the fifth Call of Duty game to claim the coveted Christmas No.1 position with a well-timed promotion on the PS4 version helping it leapfrog FIFA 15. Last year, FIFA 14 pulled off a similar trick, sneaking ahead of Call of Duty: Ghosts at the last minute to claim the festive top spot and it appears that Activision Blizzard were set on exacting revenge in 2014.
Grand Theft Auto V holds on to No.3 while the PS4 version remains the top selling game for an individual format this week. Far Cry 4 is also a non-mover at No.4, meaning it is Ubisoft’s top selling game over the festive week, despite a 97% surge in sales of Assassin’s Creed: Unity pushing it up from No.10 to No.5 as well as a huge price promotion on Ubisoft’s The Crew boosting sales by 92% and propelling it from No.11 to No.6.
Destiny climbs two places to No.7, while the Xbox version of Minecraft remains ahead of the PlayStation edition, both down one place to No.8 and No.9 respectively.
Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham slips five places to No10 to round off the Christmas Top 10.
