Evolve leads the pack of new debutants in the Ukie Games Chart
The Top 3 remain unchanged this week meaning ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ (-21%) has now claimed 8 weeks at No1, equalling the total of ‘FIFA 15’. Both ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-23%) and ‘FIFA 15’ (-11%) hold on to No’s 2 and 3 respectively, while ‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’ (+25%) jumps 4 places up to No4 thanks to several retailers promoting the PS4 version, whose ASP drops by £5 this week, down from £32 to £27. A non-mover at No5, ‘Minecraft: Xbox Edition’ (+6%) remains ahead of the Playstation Edtion which manages to climb 3 places to No6, despite a 6% drop in sales. ‘Destiny’ (+15%)
This week it is Activision’s turn to re-claim No1 as ‘COD: Advanced Warefare’ surges 27% in units over last week.. Rockstar/Take 2’s 3 week consecutive spell at the top ends as ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ drops to No2 (-7%). It does mean that these 2 titles are neck and neck right now when it comes to the number of weeks they have each had at No1 (seven) and the number of consecutive weeks (three). EA’s ‘FIFA 15’ remains at No3 (-5%) and Deep Silver/Koch remain at No4 with last week’s new release ‘Saints Row IV Re-Elected / Gat Out of Hell’ (-38%). The tail end of the retail promotion on ‘Call
Grand Theft Auto V comfortably holds on to No1 spot
Week 2 of 2015 sees a return to No1 for Rockstar/Take 2 and ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-51%). This is actually only the fifth No1 for ‘GTA V’, which some people may find surprising given its status as fastest-selling game within a 7 day period (launch week 38/2014) and also the fact that this game has sold more units than any other in the UK (achieved in week 47/2014 after the launch of the Gen 8 versions). Activision’s ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ drops to No2 (-61%) having held on to No1 for a total of 6 weeks since launch. EA’s ‘FIFA 15’ remains No3 (-51%) with an 8 week run at No1 sin

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare takes top spot for 6th week
‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ takes its 5th No1 week since launch.
Grand Theft Auto V continues to deliver strong sales climbing to No2 after four successive weeks in 3rd place. ‘FIFA 15’ is relegated to No3, which means that for the first time since 2009 a FIFA title doesn’t occupy a Top 2 position in the final week of the year.
‘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
‘FIFA 15’ (-21%) remains at No1 in the run-up to Christmas and the Top 5 remains the same, with Activision’s ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ at No2 (-27%), Rockstar/Take 2’s ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ at No3 (-22%), Ubisoft’s ‘Far Cry 4’ at No4 (-13%) and Warner’s ‘Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham’ at No5 (-29%). Ubisoft’s ‘Just Dance 2015’ jumps 5 places to No6 (+11%) and is extremely popular on Wii with 66% of sales on that format - the title is now also No1 on the All Formats Budget Chart. Activision’s ‘Destiny’ jumps 7 places to No9 (+29%) with PS4 and Xbox One editions proving extremely popul
‘FIFA 15’ (-2%) moves back into top spot for the first time in 6 weeks. It means last week’s No1 ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ (-34%) is pushed down to No2 while ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-20%) is a non-mover at No3. Ubisoft’s ‘Far Cry 4’ (-13%) also holds its position at No4 in its third week. The biggest mover comes in the form of ‘Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham’ (+99%), which thanks to retailer promotions is propelled from No19 to No5. It places ahead of Ubisoft’s new racing title ‘The Crew’. the Tuesday release is the highest new entry in the All Formats chart this week at No6.
