With no new retail releases, FIFA 14 held top spot in the UK charts, with the top 7 games all staying the same as the previous week, while also suffering major drops as the holiday season ends.

Despite the slow week, Grand Theft Auto V did achieve a major milestone as it is now the 4th biggest selling game ever in the UK. If sales manage to remain strong, GfK Chart-Track believes the game could very well be the biggest game ever in the region within the next three months.

Here’s the top 23 selling games in the UK for the week ending January 4th, 2014:

  1. FIFA 14 (down 48%; up 21% compared to FIFA 13 at this point last year)

  3. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (down 50%; 4,000 units behind Ghosts)
