Ghosts See Off Superheroes


Activision Blizzards' 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' (-76%) easily holds the No1 crown for a second week at the top of the All Formats chart.

The title adds Xbox One to its list of available formats and it sells strongly despite consumers having to wait another week until the next gen console arrives. Despite assembling an all-star cast Warner Bros. Interactive have to settle for No2 as 'Lego Marvel Superheroes' makes its debut. However it does become the 2nd biggest week 1 release for a Lego title bettered only by 'Lego Indiana Jones: Original Adventures' all the way back in Week 23 2008.

'FIFA 14' (-7%) climbs a spot to No3 swapping places with 'Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag' (-37%) which is down to No4. Last week's No2 'Battlefield 4' (-48%) drops to No5 while 'Grand Theft Auto V' (-11%) is down to No6. 'Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition' (+8%) sees a boost in sales but also drops down a place to No7. 'Skylanders Swap Force' (+11%) climbs two places to No8 helped by the early release of both Xbox One and PS4 version of the game ahead of the next gen launch. Nintendo's 'Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy' (+33%) moves up to No10, up three places from its debut last week. The title along with 'Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask' which climbs to No20, both benefit from retailer bundling which contributes to 3DS XL hardware sales more than doubling last week's total.

Further down the chart there's a debut for Sony and developer Insomniac's 'Ratchet & Clank Nexus' at No21. Take2's acclaimed tactical series Xcom is also back with 'Xcom: Enemy Within' landing at No25. The title expands on the universe of 'Xcom: Enemy Unknown' which debuted at No7 in Week 41 last year.
