Black Flag beats Battlefield 4 to top of UK charts

Sales of both iterations down compared to previous years as some consumers wait for next-gen

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag has beaten EA's Battlefield 4 to the top of the UK charts, although sales of both titles are down on previous iterations of their respective franchises.

Both titles are likely to have been affected by the imminent release of next-generation consoles, suggested Chart Track, but Black Flag sales benefited from a Tuesday release instead of the usual Friday.

Other new entries in the top ten are Sega's Football Manager 2014 for PC at 6 and WWE 2K14 at 7, now published by 2K Sports.
