    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.
    Below is the software Top Ten for the week ending January 9th:
    1. Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Activision Blizzard
    2. FIFA 16, EA

    Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony all saw record revenue for their current-gen console hardware last month, NPD has reported.
    Hardware sales for November 2015 reached $1.12bn. That's up 11 per cent compared to the same period last year, driven by a 14 per cent increase in console hardware revenue – which offset a significant drop in handheld sales.
    "Growth was driven by console hardware, up 14 percent, which offset a 31 percent decline in portable hardware,” NPD's Liam Callahan stated. "November 2015 marked the best month ever in total unit sales for 8th generation consoles (Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U), surpassing sales of December 2014 (now second-highest), and November 2014 (now third-highest)."
    "Within console hardware sales there were dramatic differences by console generation as 8th generation console sales rose by 22 percent in dollars, 7th generation sales dropped by 76 percent in dollars, which is sharper than the year-to-date decline of 57 percent. In November 2015, 8th generation sales had 93 percent share of overall hardware sales, a 9 percentage point increase from last November."
    PS4 and Xbox One sales continue to outpace their predecessors as well.
    “After 25 months, the combined sales for the PS4 and the XBO are 47 percent higher than the combined sales for 25 months of PS3 and Xbox 360 hardware sales,” Callahand added.
    The same couldn't be said about retail software sales, which fell 7 per cent during the month despite the release of Star Wars Battlefront and a new Call of Duty offering.
    "New physical software sales decreased by 7 percent as portable software sales drop 66 percent with console software sales down a modest 1 percent,” Callahan said. “Within consoles, 8th generation software sales increased by 37 percent, and largely offset the decrease in spending for 7th generation consoles, which decreased by 60 percent.”
    Overall, US sales hit $2.47bn during the stretch – a 2 per cent increase versus November 2014.

    The numbers are finally in for what appears to have been a blockbuster Black Friday.
    86 per cent of all consoles sold last week were PlayStation 4 and Xbox Ones, an increase the 75 per cent that were sold during the same period last year. Software for those platforms made up 74 per cent of all units sold – last Black Friday PS4 and Xbox One games only made up 46 per cent.
    The week ending November 28th is only one of nine weeks so far where the newer harder saw software unit share of over 70 per cent.
    In addition, software revenue increased 32 per cent over last week meaning that £56m was generated by game sales. Meanwhile 1,778,301 units were sold during the week.
    It’s not all good news, however. Software unit sales were down nine per cent year-on-year, while revenue took a dip of 10 per cent.
    FIFA is No.1 after a six-week break from the top spot with sales shooting up 254 per cent week-over-week thanks to a number of hard and software bundles. This also helped Call of Duty: Black Ops III sales rise 47 per cent. Activision’s shooter remains steady at No.2.
    Last week’s No.1 – Star Wars Battlefront – falls to third place, though sales only took a 52 per cent dip which is rather healthy. Bethesda’s Fallout 4 falls to fourth place as sales s climb eight per cent.
    In fifth place is Sony’s Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. That title was 24 per cent last week, but it shoots up 19 places to fifth place as sales shoot up 999 per cent thanks to a PlayStation 4 hardware bundle. Meanwhile Grand Theft Auto V rises six places with sales taking a 385 per cent hike.
    Hardware bundles helped a number of games see massive sales increases. Halo 5 sales shot up 195 per cent, while Forza 6 sales spiked ten 381 per cent as it rises ten places. Meanwhile, Disney Infinity 3 increases 281 per cent week-on-week and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes unit sales increases 541 per cent.
    Below is the software Top Ten for the week ending November 28th:
    1. FIFA 16, EA
    2. Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Activision Blizzard
    3. Star Wars Battlefront, EA
    4. Fallout 4, Bethesda
    5. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Sony
    6. Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar
    7. Minecraft: Story Mode, Telltale Games

    The latest Star Wars game has unsurprisingly shot to the top of the Japanese retail rankings in its debut week.
    EA’s return to the Battlefront series sold in excess of 100,000 units on PS4 during its first week on sale, outpacing the combined efforts of fellow newcomer Atelier Sophie: Fushigi na Hon no Renkinjutsushi on Vita and PS4. That game claimed the second and third places on the podium, respectively, according to the latest data from Famitsu.
    Omega Labyrinth, another Vita title, swiped the fourth spot.
    Meanwhile, the Game Director’s Edition of Sword Art Online debuted at number six, while the final new release to make the Top Ten – Vita effort Girl Friend Beta: Kimi to Sugosu Natsuyasumi – charted one spot lower.
    Last week’s number one, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, fell to number five in its second week as sales fell by more than 130,000.
    Wii U shooter Splatoon climbed two places week-on-week to rest at eight, sales rising by almost 4,000 units.
    Over in the hardware rankings, the New 3DS XL closed the gap on PS4, which has topped the charts in recent weeks.
    PS4 remained the best-selling console of the week, with the New 3DS XL behind by only around 500 units – compared to the 16,000 sales gap the previous week.

    The long-awaited arrival of the Master Chief on Xbox One has helped the console achieve a rare monthly win in the US.
    November has become the second month of 2015 (the other being April) that Xbox One has outsold PS4 in the region. It did so thanks to an 81 per cent year-on-year increase in sales.
    While PS4 still leads the US market, last year Xbox One managed to win both November and December – a trend Microsoft will be confident it can maintain.
    “We saw amazing fan excitement, commercial success and critical acclaim in October for Halo 5: Guardians, which was the best-selling game in the US,” Xbox marketing boss Mike Nichols said.
    “We also saw incredible reception for the new Xbox Elite Wireless Controller in October, which is now sold out at most retailers and we are working quickly to replenish stock. And October was just the start. Earlier this week Rise of the Tomb Raider and Fallout 4 launched, today the New Xbox One Experience including backward compatibility launched and many are looking forward to Star Wars Battlefront on November 17th – available today exclusively on Xbox One to EA Access members.
    “It’s going to be an amazing holiday for Xbox fans.”
    Nintendo did not share any hardware data, but did say that Wii U software sales were up 40 per cent year-on-year for the month and are up 20 per cent for the year-to-date. 800k Amiibo figures and cards were also sold in the period, bringing total US sales to 9m.
    The overall console market was flat at $270m, with declines in portables offsetting the 12 per cent rise in next-gen console sales. The overall US October video games market was worth $806m, up two per cent year-on-year, but down on September’s $1bn+.
    PS4 and Xbox One posted 62 per cent year-on-year growth while last-gen machines plummeted by 63 per cent.
    Here’s the October NPD Top Ten:

    1. Halo 5: Guardians (Xbox One)
    2. NBA 2K16 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3)
    3. Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate (PS4, Xbox One)
    4. Madden NFL 16 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3)
    5. WWE 2K16 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3)
    6. FIFA 16 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3)
    7. Destiny: The Taken King (PS4, Xbox ONe, 360, PS3)
    8. Yoshi’s Wooly World (Wii U)
    9. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (PS4)
    10. Rock Band 4 (Xbox One, PS4)

    Guitar Hero, which came out far later in the month, finished just outside the Top Ten at no.11. Super Mario Maker missed out on a chart spot.
