Red Dead Redemption 2 crowned Christmas No.1

Red Dead Redemption 2

It’s a Red Christmas as Rockstar/Take 2’s ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ holds on to top spot to claim this year’s X-mas No1.  It is only their 2nd X-mas No1 after ‘Grand Theft Auto: Vice City’ claimed the festive crown back in 2002. 

It also denies either ‘FIFA’ or ‘Call of Duty’ from recording the most ever Christmas No1s as they are both currently level with eight.  The perennial giants from EA and Activision are also non-movers with ‘FIFA 19’ at No2 and ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’ at No3. 

Last minute Christmas shopping and winter sales give most titles a sales boost as the All Formats Top 10 shuffles amongst itself including ‘Battlefield V’ rising 3 places to No4.
