The LEGO Movie becomes the sixth LEGO game to have topped the charts, with the last one being LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes back in 2012.
The LEGO game was able to easily beat Call of Duty: Ghosts, selling 15,000 more copies than Activision’s shooter according to Chart Track, despite it being helped by a number of retailer promotions. Our third foray into the universe of Final Fantasy XIII makes its debut in third place.
A weeks after hitting 10 weeks at number one, FIFA 14 sees itself drop down to fourth this week, whilst Grand Theft Auto V climbs one place into fifth.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes drops down a place to sixth whilst Battlefield 4 is a non-mover at seventh.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag climbs back up to eighth and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition drops down to ninth this week.
The Top 10 was rounded off this week by Fable: Anniversary.
Overall this is a rather LEGO dominated week in the charts, with the Top 40 being home to five LEGO games, encompassing 1/8th of the chart positions. LEGO Batman 2 sits in 19th, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is in 22nd and LEGO Lord of the Rings is 27th.
