Week 2 of 2015 sees a return to No1 for Rockstar/Take 2 and ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-51%).

This is actually only the fifth No1 for ‘GTA V’, which some people may find surprising given its status as fastest-selling game within a 7 day period (launch week 38/2014) and also the fact that this game has sold more units than any other in the UK (achieved in week 47/2014 after the launch of the Gen 8 versions).

Activision’s ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ drops to No2 (-61%) having held on to No1 for a total of 6 weeks since launch. EA’s ‘FIFA 15’ remains No3 (-51%) with an 8 week run at No1 since launch. There are no new releases and the only other notable change is the rise of Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’ from No27 to No11 (-3%) thanks to a spike in sales of the official Assassin’s Creed Kinect Unity/Black Flag Xbox One hardware bundle.

£299 including two games is a very good deal.

It's dropped down to £20, and still came with almost all PS4 units sold in retail last week. Next week will be the big test as the price will go back up to £30 and the bundles will stop plus there is a flood of second hand copies for cheap as well.

That's not a bad deal at all. Not as competitive as some of the Christmas bundles, but still a good deal.

Yes, the single format game loses out to the one on everything.

Meanwhile, on the single formats, Driveclub beats every SKU.

Yeah, I don't think it was bundled as heavily in the US, so between that and less people getting their hands on it for word of mouth, sales aren't as good.

MS can not be pleased with Sunset Overdrives performance.

Also its sad to see the performance of Dragon Age in the UK, I think its a great game, but its just not found an audience. DA2 maybe did the series quite a bit of damage.

So many unwanted copies of DriveClub have been traded in, according to the staff at my local stores - Sony shovelled so many copies out there. Couldn't get rid of my bundled copy quick enough.

37 (32) PS4 DRIVECLUB (SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT)

The latest German charts have Driveclub selling below GT6 -- the British retailers must be doing something special to the title to keep it consistently in the top 10.

Selling Driveclub for £20 and also including it with many bundles is keeping it in the chart. I am sure after the PS+ edition is released the game will get another jump in sales.

Do second hand copies count on the sales charts?

I really expected Dragon Age to do a lot better. It's the first real fantasy game released on this generation of hardware and it's got great reviews. It's a deeply flawed game but that has never stopped mediocre games from selling in the past. Really surprised about that, tbh.

It's always hard to tell around this time of year which games have genuine legs and which games are just hanging around the top 20 by default of nothing coming out. I mean, I think the only PS4 retail releases this month are Saints Row IV, Dying Light, Motorcycle Club and Raven's Cry. Pretty sure it's the same on XB1, haven't heard of any exclusives coming in Jan.

Sent out to die. Had such a small print run that Amazon and game.co.uk sold out, yet it didn't chart too strong in its first week, then dropped out of the charts. Absolutely no marketing, even with EA's deep pockets AND MS having a deal to market their games, neither of them decided to run a TV advert for it. Madness.

No. New copies only, sold in retail and online stores.

No marketing and ridiculously low production runs seem to have killed it before it had a chance. Given all the GOTY awards it won, and the fact that at the very least Skyrim shows there's a healthy fantasy market out there, I'm increasingly wondering if EA aren't deliberately trying to end the franchise for some reason.
