"Too much turkey"

While it's true that Call of Duty doesn't sell quite as well as it used to, it's still a much stronger brand than virtually all of its peers. Having secured the Christmas crown last week, Black Ops III has once again topped the UK sales charts, having increased its numbers by a whopping 40 per cent. As expected, the PS4 version sold best, with Sony's system also moving more copies of Star Wars Battlefront.

FIFA 16 and Fallout 4 rounded out a familiar looking top four, as the holidays pushed Grand Theft Auto V up into fifth. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection slipped out of the top ten, while PS4 exclusives Until Dawn and The Last of Us Remastered rounded out the bottom half of the chart. Lastly, holiday sales pushed Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Battlefield 4, and The Elder Scrolls Online back into the Top 40.
