As the post-Christmas release drought continues, old releases climb up the charts following price promotions. FIFA 14 remains No.1.

Aliens: Colonial Marines and Sony’s Killzone: Shadowfall have both climbed back up the UK charts, with Sega’s shooter now selling at an average price of less than £5.

The latest Killzone jumped due to renewed PS4 stock at retail, while titles such as Dead Island: Riptide, Max Payne 3, Grid 2, Gears of War: Judgement and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Legendary all did well in the sales.

EA’s FIFA 14 stayed at number one with a drop in sales of 32 per cent, followed by Call of Duty: Ghosts, where sales dropped 41 per cent. Battlefield 4 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag saw sales tumble 48 and 52 per cent, respectively.

The top ten follows:

01 FIFA 14
02 Call of Duty: Ghosts
03 Battlefield 4
04 Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
05 Grand Theft Auto V
06 Lego Marvel Super Heroes
