In perhaps the least surprising news of the week, the UK charts have stayed pretty much the same in the top five, and there’s minimal change in the top ten aside from a couple of titles jumping up several spaces. We really need to get on those new retail releases soon.
FIFA 14 takes the number one spot, while Call of Duty: Ghosts remains just behind in second place, with Battlefield 4 and Assassin’s Creed IV doing a little swap between third and fourth. Grand Theft Auto V sits at number five yet again.
Things get a bit more interesting after the top five, and after LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and Need For Speed Rivals swap numbers at sixth and seventh, where Killzone Shadow Fall nabs the eighth spot, jumping up from 14. Unfortunately, Aliens: Colonial Marines does much the same, going from 15th to 10th.
Dead Island: Riptide and NBA 2K14 re-enter the chart at 16 and 19 respectively, but aside from that there’s no new entries or anything exciting at all. January is boring.
