‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ (-64%) starts 2017 just as it ended 2016 – at No1.
It is the 8th week that Activision Blizzard’s blockbuster has grabbed top spot and if it holds on for another week it will equal the 2nd highest number of All Formats No1s for a Call of Duty title, matching ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’. However, it still has a way to go to equal front runner Black Ops III’s 11 weeks of No1s. ‘FIFA 17’ (-72%) holds on to No2 ahead of ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-66%) which continues to creep up the chart, climbing one place to No3. Another retailer price promotion on ‘Forza Horizon 3’ (-5%) propels it back in to the Top 10, up from No12 to No5. ‘Pokemon Sun’ (+91%) leaves ‘Pokemon Moon’ (-19%) in the shade as renewed stock gives it a boost ahead of its sister title; pushing it back in to the Top 10 for the first time since W49 last year, up from No36 to No9. New stock also gives another Nintendo title a boost with renewed sales from the 2DS hardware bundle pushing ‘New Super Mario Bros. 2’ (+77%) back in to the Top 40, at No37.
