Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the UK's Christmas 2014 number one.
Activision's aggressive price promotion on PlayStation 4 sparked a 33 per cent rise in sales last week, fending off stiff competition from rival publisher EA's FIFA 15, which saw an eight per cent rise in sales.
Chart-Track called it revenge for Activision, whose Call of Duty: Ghosts lost out on last year's Christmas number one to EA's FIFA 14, which benefited from a price promotion of its own.
It's all big hitters in the top 10. Grand Theft Auto 5 is third with a 16 per cent rise in sales. The PS4 version was the top-selling game for an individual format, so Rockstar can claim a moral victory.
Ubisoft's sandbox shooter Far Cry 4 is fourth with a 17 per cent rise in sales. It's the publisher's top-selling game over the Christmas week despite a whopping 97 per cent rise in sales of Assassin's Creed: Unity, which rose from 10th to fifth. A "huge" price promotion on open world racer The Crew saw that game speed up from 11th to sixth place off the back of a 92 per cent rise in sales. But it's worth noting that the average selling price of the PS4 version of The Crew was down around £15 from the previous week.
Bungie's online FPS Destiny climbs two places to seventh with a 32 per cent rise in sales, while Minecraft Xbox Edition is eighth, with Minecraft PlayStation Edition ninth. LEGO Batman 3 Beyond Gotham rounds out the top 10.
