Bookies now taking bets on Xmas No. 1

Mod War and Ass Creed sequels favourite.

Bookmaker Paddy Power is now taking bets on the game which will top the all-formats chart this Christmas.

At the time of writing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was the favourite, with odds of 6/5. Assassin's Creed II is next up at 7/2, followed by Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games (9/2).

The least likely contenders are SmackDown vs. RAW 2010 and SAW: The Videogame, both at 150/1.

Looks like another COD Christmas then, unless there are any to-be-announced surprises we don't know about. Cliff Richard's Christmas Millennium Family Party Wii, anyone?
