Call of Duty WWII is still at the top of the UK sales chart. Star Wars Battlefront II's sales hurt by microtransactions. Forza Motorsport 7 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus back in the top 10.

Black Friday came and went, and we're here to talk about the results. Call of Duty WWII is still flying off the shelves, and Star Wars Battlefront II is somehow in the top five again this week.

The top three games are: Call of Duty WWII, FIFA 18 and Gran Turismo: Sport. The trio was almost universally featured in bundles offered in retail either via official hard bundles or bespoke soft bundles during the Black Friday sales.

Star Wars Battlefront II dropped two places and is now at number four. The legal wildfire sparked by in-game microtransactions has spread into Britain and France. More on that later.

Forza Motorsport 7 found itself in the top 10 again after being relegated to number 15 in the last week's chart. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus pulled a similar trick and landed on number 7 after seeing how the other half lives in the depths of the top 40. 

Fallout 4 and Need for Speed Payback round off the top 10.

Playstation VR Worlds climbed nine places to number 11 this week, thanks mostly to Sony’s PSVR Starter Pack deal. The deal included the title and made the PSVR headset sales soar last week. The sales were on a par with the headset's launch week (wk41/2016) and this week is the equivalent to the past 18 weeks of PSVR sell-through.

The top 10 looks like this:

1. Call of Duty WWII

2. FIFA 18

3. Gran Turismo: Sport

4. Star Wars Battlefront II

5. Assassin's Creed Origins

6. Forza Motorsport 7

7. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

8. Super Mario Odyssey

9. Fallout 4

10. Need for Speed Payback
