'FIFA 14' (+18%) jumps ahead of 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' (+7%) just in time to secure the coveted Christmas No1 spot that, since 2007 and 'Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare', has largely been dominated by Activision Blizzard.

It is not since 2008 and 'FIFA 09' that EA last claimed the Official Christmas No1. However, since the chart began 28 years ago, EA have secured by far the highest number of Xmas No1s with 14 (8 of which have been FIFA). 'FIFA 14' beats 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' by a respectable 17,000 units with 'Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag' (+92%) also comfortable at No3, up from No5 thanks to retailer price promotions on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. 'Battlefield 4' (+17%) has to settle for another week at No4, while 'Lego Marvel Super Heroes' ( -17%) at No5 almost gets caught by a buoyant 'Grand Theft Auto V' (+94%), up from No8 to No6. Only 400 sales separate Warner's title from Take 2's record breaker. 'Just Dance 2014' slips one place to No7 despite an 18% increase in sales. 'Need for Speed: Rivals' (+25%) is EA's 3rd Top 10 title this week, also slipping one place, down from No7 to No8. PS4 exclusive 'Killzone: Shadow Fall', still benefiting from strong sales of the fixed PS4 hardware bundle, makes a Top 10 re-appearance at No9. Another single format title, 'Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition' keeps 'Gran Turismo 6' (-5%) out of the Top 10 thanks to a 24% jump in sales.

PS4 doing really well there. 8 SKUs, 2 in the top 10.

6 SKUs for XBO too.

To be honest, I'm surprised PS4 is doing as well as it is as I thought stock was more limited. XB1 was in plentiful stock for the end of last week at PC World, Tesco, GAME etc. I didn't realise any PS4 stock had come in, haven't seen one for sale anywhere - but clearly they are doing.

Every PS4 game went up, every XB1 game (except Ryse) went down. Has probably to do with the new wave of PS4 stock.

Also, I had to check twice when I saw ACNL still above Pokemon o,o

I suppose Pokémon total sales are higher than AC this week. Given the sales pace, I suppose you could take one of the two Pokémon SKU and 2x it in order to obtain total Pokémon's sales.

Indeed, it seems that most people's Wiis have retired to becoming Just Dance machines, rather than the former Wii Sports machines they were in their younger days.

More likely to be the Knack PS4 bundle, let's be honest. I did buy Knack over the weekend however, my gf absolutely loves it as it's so simple and easy to play. But it's all a little too simplistic for my liking and does feel like a PS1 or Dreamcast era title with fancy graphics.

Its becoming a trend now that PS4 multiplats outsell XBO versions in a supposed "Xbox" market.

Not much of a surprise, most of us expected this, the price difference is big enough to warrant a shift. Will be interesting to see how it develops over the next year.

UK was never an Xbox market. The 360 just happened to launch at the right time and at the right price which allowed it to gain the upper hand and larger install base.

We're seeing the same happen with the PS4 right now.

Wii game in the top 5 and no Wii U in sight for the Christmas charts... holy shit.

PS4 edging out Xbone a little for next gen performance is probably not all that surprising given the prices, but it's still a sight to see after the past few years of UK charts.

Have any of Sony's recent PS3 ad campaigns worked?

Beyond bombed, GT6 apparently bombed by series standards. I think GTA5 was the only successful one for them in that sales were pretty close to those on 360...

Yea, definitely a mistake releasing on PS3. PS4 version would have been bundled and easily passed ~300-400k

It's a budget release, gets very well-targeted marketing and it appears on every platform ever. It's one of the last touchstones of home console casual gaming, when most of that audience has moved on to touch screens.

Launch bundles. Honestly. Chart positions of heavily bundled games like Killzone and Knack are really not particularly meaningful at this stage.

I find it remarkable that it sells so well on the wii which is a dead platform.

I think PS3 sales are really going to struggle against PS4 now, it's not another PS2 situation and the price gap is relatively small.

Beyond bombed, GT6 apparently bombed by series standards. I think GTA5 was the only successful one for them in that sales were pretty close to those on 360...

The Last of Us? It came out half a year ago and it still charts.

Better. Must be because it's more ethnically diverse.

Doesn't change the fact that the game bombed (on GT standards) in UK and Japan, 2 of the top 3 gaming territories.
