2015 gets underway with an unchanged Top 3, meaning ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ (-51%) has now achieved 6 weeks at No1, one more week than predecessor ‘Ghosts’.

‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-48%) is not far behind at No2, staying ahead of ‘FIFA 15’ (-57%) at No3. Ubisoft’s top sellers ‘Far Cry 4’ (-42%) and ‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’ (-48%) switch places with Far Cry moving up one place to No4 and Creed slipping down one place to No5. Ubisoft also find themselves at No6 with ‘The Crew’ (-54%) a non-mover.

Only 3,000 sales separate No7 from No10 as ‘Destiny’ (-47%) at No7 and ‘WWE 2K15’ (-40%) at No8 both manage to break back into the Top 10, up from No’s 11 and 12 respectively. ‘DriveClub’ (-56%) and ‘Minecraft: Xbox Edition’ (-57%) are less fortunate, both dropping 2 places to No’s 9 and 10. In a week not known for new releases Nintendo newcomer ‘Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker’ for Wii U debuts at No16.

Looking at this I'd say it's likely the PS4 beat the XB1 in consoles sale. 6 titles in the top ten for the PS4 and 3 titles in the top ten for the XB1. And the 3 biggest franchises ahead of the XB1:

01 (01) PS4 GRAND THEFT AUTO V (TAKE 2)

Nice to see Horizon 2 rise, though it still deserves better.

Persona 4 re-entered the Vita chart at #20. Must be due to me finishing it over xmas and stamping it as the only JRPG with my approval.

If most of the sales the sales are from bundles it's natural it would fall after the holidays as hardware sales slow down.

Pretty much. There hasn't been much in the way of Boxing Day or New Year sales for PS4 with most of its business coming between Black Friday and Christmas.

Yes, I played a demo of it in Game a couple of weeks ago, and while I was playing two or three people stood behind me watching. It's a really striking and smooth game so like you say, it demos really well and first impressions tend to be made in awe.

Not sure if you're serious, but there's zero chance that Driveclub will hit the 6-10 million sales a GT instalment tends to make.

Unfortunately not. I don't know whether it wasn't updated with the latest patch (I would assume demo pods are never connected online) or what the race conditions were. I basically found it paused mid-race and reset to give it a whirl myself.

I don't want to claim anyone's a problem, everyone may like whatever he wants, butregarding Unity: I think it's one of the best Assassin's Creeds, a series which I do have quite a bit of fun with, even though I'd never pay full price for an AC. The bug / performance problems are annoying, but trashing the whole game because of this, claiming it's a problem if someone still finds it fun, is a bit unfair.

They need to update it then because it would draw even bigger crowds.

Mostly because of bundles but I reckon too many underestimate its individual sales performance.


If you own a PS4 and have an interest in racing games (the audience is big in the UK), you're gonna get Driveclub.

If you want a title to show off your new console, you're gonna buy DC, as it's obviously stunning graphically.

I think Argos were selling it at like Ł299 at one point. Might have even been with another game (I forget).

Should be noted that the release date for Captain Toad was broken by both GAME and ShopTo who have been selling the game since before Christmas

Even a single plattform game like FM 2015 sells better than PES 2015 on all plattforms. Konami is dead.

No idea why they keep on trying. FIFA is too popular here.

Persona 4 re-entered the Vita chart at #20. Must be due to me finishing it over xmas and stamping it as the only JRPG with my approval.

It's #1 in Shopto's Vita chart. Maybe a few retailers got a new shipment in and discounted it a bit.

You need not be number one in order to be profitable. Maybe PES just is a very profitable franchise?

It's the UK chart, WiiU is dead there, can't expect more from a game.

There is only one game in here (Assassin's Creed Unity) I find fun (or which I would even like to play if given for free). Sad to see how disconnected my taste is from the majority's.

It's not just you, it's a new gen and new experiences should follow but it really does feel like the same stuff over and over. That sounds really elitist and apologies for that but this is not why you buy a next gen console, just to play the next COD and remasters. There are some exceptions in that list thankfully.

No idea. It's a shame considering the serie's past. They were the number one :(

But they simply dont have EAs marketing budget nor the most important licenses. And I don't even think that the gameplay is much better than FIFAs. People claim its the return but I dont know... played plenty and there is so much wrong about it. PS: FIFA 15 was a gameplay downgrade as well.

They were never number one in the UK, I don't know why some of the PAL guys here think UK=EU, just like our American cousins think USA=World.

PES will never beat Fifa, as long as it's profitable Konami will make it, it's not hard to understand. The idea that they should stop trying is laughable, yes, every game that doesn't sell 10 million plus should stop being made.

Toad did a bit better than I expected, given the broken street date and niche quality of the title. I realize this is like being happy you got one coin from defeating twenty Shy Guys, but still.
