Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has claimed the Christmas No1 spot in the UK all-format charts, overtaking FIFA 15 at the eleventh hour thanks to a PlayStation 4 bundle promotion.

It means that Activision's flagship shooter series has topped the UK chart at Christmas on five separate occasions. FIFA 15, the clear frontrunner in the build-up to the holiday period, drops to second.

In third and fourth are the non-movers GTA5 and Far Cry 4, while a 97 percent surge in sales pushes Assassin's Creed Unity to fifth. A similar spike in sales for The Crew, Ubisoft's open-world racer, brings it to sixth as retailers lower the game's price by as much as £15.

The all-format top ten follows:

  1. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
  2. FIFA 15
  3. Grand Theft Auto 5
  4. Far Cry 4
  5. Assassin’s Creed: Unity
  6. The Crew
  7. Destiny
  8. Minecraft Xbox Edition
  9. Minecraft PlayStation Edition
  10. LEGO Batman 3 Beyond Gotham
