While there were a few movers on the chart (FIFA 16 went from 4th to 2nd), the biggest story is Battlefield 4. Thanks to price promotions on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, it re-entered the top 10, with 97% of sales last week coming from last-gen consoles.

Additionally, GfK Chart-Track notes that Grand Theft Auto V, which placed in 4th, sold 16,360 copies.
