Call of Duty: Ghosts has returned to the top of the All Formats All Prices UK video game chart, thanks to a 33 per cent increase in sales week-on-week.
Ghosts beat FIFA 14 to the top by just over 6,000 units, despite FIFA being the second biggest-selling PS4 launch game behind Killzone: Shadow Fall.
PS4's second exclusive release, Knack, could manage only 13th place, but was able to outsell Super Mario 3D World at No.14. Injustice: Gods Among Us – Ultimate Edition scraped into the chart at No.38.
Elsewhere, GTA 5 sales almost doubled week-on-week thanks to retailer promotions which saw the game jump one place to No.7. Batman: Arkham Origins also benefited from price reductions, climbing six places to No.10.
In the Xbox One's second week, Forza 5 falls ten places to No.15, Dead Rising 3 drops to No.18 and Ryse: Son of Rome finds itself at No.24.

The multi-platform boost was expected given the launch of PS4, but the big shock comes in the shape of Nintendo's Super Mario 3D World. The game has been received amazingly well and will surely appear in many Game of the Year lists, but so small is the Wii U install base that not even Mario could force his way into the Top 10.
If one of the best Mario games can't sell the Wii U then the question has to be asked, what else can Nintendo do? A big price cut may be the only option.
