Activision's Call of Duty starts 2016 as it ended 2015: in the No.1 spot in the All Formats Top 40.
The title holds pole position, despite a 68 per cent drop in sales, ahead of soccer blockbuster FIFA 16.
EA's football game climbed two places this week and reaches No.2. It's just ahead of fellow EA title Star Wars Battlefront which is pushed one place to third position.
Grand Theft Auto V is STILL in the charts and rises one place over the course of the week, finishing at No.4 as Fallout 4 drops to fifth place with a 75 per cent drop in sales.
Meanwhile, new Tom Clancy shooter Rainbow Six: Siege holds fast at No.6 in spite of a 58 per cent drop in sales. Last week's ninth place WWE 2K16 manages to rise up two places to No.7, too.
In tenth place is EA's Battlefield 4. That title debuted in November 2013, and returns to the Top Ten due to a price promotion on the game which saw Argos selling it for 1.99 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
