The boys are back in town

Rockstar Games’ open world opus Grand Theft Auto V has put a bullet in another strong competitor this week, topping the UK sales charts despite the release of Skylanders: Swap Force, which finished in third. In truth, the Activision published toy-‘em-up performed worse than its predecessor, suggesting perhaps that the release of Disney Infinity has taken a chunk of its market – or that consumers are simply tiring of the series.

Beyond: Two Souls held surprisingly strongly, dropping only one place into sixth. Meanwhile, it was an excellent week for Killzone: Mercenary, which on the back of a bunch of retailer promotions, jumped straight back into 13th. The offers also saw stellar PlayStation Vita port Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition rise into 15th. Elsewhere on the PS3, FIFA 14 fired into second, F1 2013 parked up in eighth, and Just Dance 2014 boogied to the beat of its own drum in tenth.
