UK chart: COD, it's Ghosts town

Gran Turismo 6 still off the pace.

The gaming industry has wrapped up for Christmas and it's the familiar faces staking their claim for that coveted festive number-one spot.

This week's new release.

In poll position, as always at this time of year, it's Call of Duty, according to the chart compiled by GfK Chart-Track. Last year's Christmas number-one was Black Ops 2.

Just behind Ghosts today is this year's FIFA game, then this year's Lego game, then this year's Battlefield game, then this year's Assassin's Creed game, then this year's Just Dance game, then this year's Need for Speed game and then, eventually, Grand Theft Auto 5, which comes around far less often. Will there be a cheeky discount to ram it up the festive pile in time for Christmas?

Sweaty flexer WWE 2K14 is ninth, and after only two weeks on sale, Gran Turismo 6 is 10th. Killzone: Shadow Fall just missed out on the top-10, placing 11th.

Elsewhere, Sega and Gearbox's regrettable Aliens: Colonial Marines game clawed back 38 places to reach 33rd, apparently. That's less to do with Sega and Creative Assembly's new Alien Isolation game leaking, though, and more to do with retailer discounts.
