The excellent Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag outpaced Battlefield 4 to take this week’s UK sales charts crown, despite both titles being bitten by the next generation bug. Neither release managed to sell as many copies as their predecessors, with many consumers no doubt waiting for the PlayStation 4 versions of the same games.

Batman: Arkham Origins, last week’s frontrunner, swooped all the way down into fifth, toppled by FIFA 14 and Grand Theft Auto V, which secured third and fourth respectively. Meanwhile, WWE 2K14 finished up in seventh, as Skylanders: Swap Force switched things up in ninth. Unbelievably, both LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes and LEGO Lord of the Rings continued to loiter in the top twenty.

As always, you can peruse the full list of movers and shakers through here. Did you pick up any of the abovementioned releases this week? Are you waiting for the next generation iterations of this holiday’s heavy hitters? Rattle your spare change in the comments section below.
