GTA V To Fall Just Short Of Christmas Top Spot

GTA V To Fall Just Short Of Christmas Top Spot


The release of Grand Theft Auto V is less than a week away and with pre-order sales already looking impressive, William hill are offering 4/1 that it is top of the UK games charts on Christmas Day, behind just Call Of Duty: Ghosts (6/4 favourite) and FIFA 14 (2/1).


The latest Batman release, Arkham Origins and Battlefield 4 both sit at 10/1 to be the best selling game for Christmas.


“There is no doubting that GTA V will sit at the top of the games chart for a couple of weeks (at least until FIFA hits the shelves) but will it sustain enough momentum to make it top for Christmas?” said William hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “The odds would suggest it will fall just short.”


Top game for Christmas: 6/4 Call of Duty: Ghosts; 2/1 FIFA 14; 4/1 GTA V; 10/1 Batman: Arkham Origins; 10/1 Battlefield 4; 16/1 Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag; 20/1 Gran Turismo 6; 25/1 LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes

*XBOX 360 & PS4 sales only
