Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 PlayStation 4

Rockstar is sure to be pleased with how Red Dead Redemption 2 is doing in the UK charts -- it's officially the country's Christmas number one. While this is still purely based on physical sales, it's a great result for the smash hit western. According to GamesIndustry, it's Rockstar's second ever UK number one at Chrimbo, the first being Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

The top three games in the chart haven't moved at all, so you're looking at FIFA 19 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 in second and third place respectively. The rest of the chart is fairly predictable, with the biggest jump in the top 10 being Battlefield V -- it climbs up from seventh to fourth place thanks to price reductions in stores. The rest of the best sellers are about what we'd expect; Spyro: Reignited Trilogy remains in the middle, Marvel's Spider-Man swings into eighth place, and the ever popular Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy finishes 2018 at number nine.

Here's the final UK top 10 for 2018.
