GTA V stays top in UK, Skylanders: Swap Force stumbles in debut week

Beyond Two Souls falls down chart, Sonic: Lost World misses top ten

Take-Two and Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V remains at the top of the UK all-formats charts this week, despite a drop in sales of over 30 per cent.

With EA's FIFA 14 the second highest seller, Activision's new Skylanders: Swap Force makes its debut at number three with 35 per cent less sales than last year's Skylanders: Giants.

Sony exclusive Beyond Two Souls drops to number six after its debut week, with sales down 60 per cent.

The week's other new release, Sonic: Lost Worlds from Nintendo and Sega, missed out on the top 10 entirely, charting at number 11. The only two games in the top ten to see sales rise were Minecraft 360 Edition (up 19 per cent) and Disney Infinity (up 20 per cent).

It once again looks like pokemon would claim top spot if counted as one game.

Skylanders sales will no doubt pick up around the holiday season. Think about it for a hot lap: school JUST started here in the US and other countries, so a game such as this that's a TOTAL time sink isn't going to be snapped up by parents right away until Black Friday sales when a bunch of those toys get cheaper and bundled with that new game as an under the tree gift...

I guess it had some competition from Disney Infinity too, although I expect both will sell shedloads for Xmas.
