Top 5 UK games chart unmoved as FIFA continues to lead the pack.


It may be the busy Christmas period on the High Street, but video game sales stumbled in the UK this week.

The top five games in the region all suffered a drop in sales and sat in the same positions as last week.

FIFA 15 sales were down 21 percent, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare down 27 percent, GTA V down 22 percent, Far Cry 4 down 13 percent and Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham down 29 percent.

With no new releases, it was only Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2015 and Activision’s Destiny that saw any significant movement up the charts.
