Grand Theft Auto V Steals the Top Spot on UK Charts for a Second Week

It’s hard to believe, but this is only the second week in a row Grand Theft Auto V has landed at the top of the UK Charts.  Rockstar’s critically and commercially successful title lost out several weeks to FIFA 14, but now it’s having the last laugh.  Grand Theft Auto V retains the top spot while FIFA 14 has to deal with being just second.

The past week was pretty bare when it came to new titles.  The previous week saw the release of Pokemon X, Pokemon Y and Beyond: Two Souls, which all appear on this week’s charts though not as high as last week.  This week saw the release of Skylanders: SWAP Force and Sonic: Lost World in the UK.  So, how did they do?

Skylanders: SWAP Force fared the best coming in the third place spot.  This is the same spot its chief rival Disney Infinity launched at back in August.  Sonic: Lost World only made it to the eleventh spot, a pretty big disappointment for one of the Wii U’s big exclusive titles.
