Grand Theft Auto 5 has become the best-selling game ever in the UK, pushed over the line by last week's release of the remastered versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Rockstar's widely admired felony-simulator took first place in the charts, holding off another new major debutant in the shape of Far Cry 4. That game enters at second but becomes the series' fastest seller yet.

The UK's best selling game ever (solus, all-format) was Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops, which shipped in 2010. That shooter series is still performing well, with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare holding third place after two weeks at the top.

Dragon Age: Inquisition, EA's acclaimed third entry in the RPG series, enters at fifth, behind FIFA 15.

The full chart follows:

  1. Grand Theft Auto 5
  2. Far Cry 4
  3. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
  4. FIFA 15
  5. Dragon Age: Inquisition
  6. Assassin's Creed Unity
  7. WWE 2K15
  8. Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
  9. Minecraft PlayStation Edition
  10. Halo: The Master Chief Collection
