COD ends year on a high

02/Jan/2017

As predicted last week, Activision top the final week of the year and take a fourth consecutive No1 thanks to ‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’.


There’s not much movement within the chasing pack: EA’s ‘FIFA 17’ remains at No2, EA’s ‘Battlefield 1’ remains at No3 and Rockstar/Take 2 end the year on a high by climbing 1 place to No4 with ‘Grand Theft Auto V’. GTA V was last seen as high as No4 some 12 weeks ago and has also been within the Top 4 for 12 weeks in 2016. Ubisoft drop one place to No5 with ‘WatchDogs 2’, 2K/Take 2 remain at No6 with ‘Mafia III’ and 505 Games’ ‘Rocket League’ climbs 5 places to No 7. Sony re-enter the Top 10 at No8, climbing 18 places with ‘Uncharted 4’ – partly due to solus software price promotion across retail, partly due to promotional activity on the Official PS4 500GB with Uncharted 4, which this week accounts for 17% of PS4 hardware compared to just 6% of PS4’s sold last week (average price on this SKU has dropped from around £218 in week 51 to £198 in week 52).
