With COD and FIFA having traded chart success in recent weeks, Activision’s first person epic has edged its football-themed rival to claim the coveted Christmas crown.
Becoming the fifth title in the Call of Duty franchise to claim the festive top spot, Advanced Warfare saw week-on-week sales jump 33 per cent thanks to a number of retailer promotions.
Although GTA 5 took top honours in the individual format charts – shifting more copies on PS4 than any other game – Rockstar’s open world giant could only claim third in the all format chart.
Having been handed a £15 price cut during the past week, Ubisoft’s The Crew was the sixth highest selling pre-Christmas release followed by Destiny and the ever-present Minecraft.

With both the Xbox One and PS4 having now been on sale for a year, ‘next-gen titles’ dominate the Christmas top 10, although all-platform Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham rounded out the week’s lead positions.
