‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ (+33%) becomes the 5th Call of Duty game to claim the coveted Christmas No1 with a well-timed promotion on the PS4 version helping it leapfrog ‘FIFA 15’ (+8%).
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’ (+16%) holds on to No3 while the PS4 version remains the top selling game for an individual format this week.
‘Far Cry 4’ (+17%) is also a non-mover at No4, 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 No10 to No5 as well as a huge price promotion on Ubisoft’s ‘The Crew’ boosting sales by 92% and propelling it from No11 to No6. The average selling price of the PS4 version of ‘The Crew’ is down around £15 from last week. ‘Destiny’ (+32%) climbs two places to No7, while the Xbox version of Minecraft (+14%) remains ahead of the Playstation edition (+10%), both down one place to No’s 8 and 9 respectively. ‘Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham’ (-11%) slips 5 places to No10 to round off the Christmas Top 10.
