GTA V steals the top of the Xbox One charts ands sets new record

Sunday Screenshots GTA V PS4 Franklin 1

Rockstar Games' new remastered version of Grand Theft Auto V takes the top spot in the UK charts this week, and sets a new record.

GTA V is number one in the charts again, a year after its initial release on last gen consoles. OK, so it's a shinier version, but it's still impressive. Not only is it now sitting proudly at the top of the charts for Xbox One, it's also top of the all-format charts, and it's now the best-selling game in the UK ever.

GTA V was close the previous sales record held by Call of Duty: Black Ops, which was released in 2010. Now that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of GTA V have arrived it's finally overtaken Black Ops to claim the all-time unit sales record in the UK. It also holds the record for highest-grossing game in a week (£94 million total UK estimate in its 2013 release week) and highest all-time UK revenue.

There were some other big titles released last week also, which include Far Cry 4 - now sitting at two right behind GTA - and Dragon Age: Inquisition which comes in at six. WWE 2K15 also arrived straight in at eight.

Elsewhere in the charts we have Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare holding steady at three from last week, and all other titles have dropped down in place.

The top 10 games in the UK for Xbox One, according to the Chart Track games charts as at 22nd November 2014, are below:

1 GRAND THEFT AUTO V

2 FAR CRY 4

3 CALL OF DUTY: ADVANCED WARFARE
