pokemon-omega-ruby-and-alpha-sapphirePokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire out-debuted Pokemon X and Y by 17 percent, earning the series’ biggest launch in UK charts history. The 3DS remakes hit 3 million sales in 3 days ahead of last week’s launch in Britain, where they topped DS titles Black and White to capture the country’s Poke-record. The two games landed in sixth and seventh in this week’s charts, but combined they’d have charted in third.

As for the rest of the top ten, it was a case of big-selling musical chairs at the summit and underwhelming debuts for exclusives. Starting at the top, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare took back the No. 1 spot from Grand Theft Auto 5, which fell to third with FIFA 15 up to second. Lower down, PS4 racer Driveclub rose to eighth with a massive 999 percent jump in sales on the back of Black Friday console promotions.

November 28 wasn’t as prolific a day for two big-profile launches, though. Super Smash Bros. only rose to 13th following the arrival of its Wii U version, while LittleBigPlanet 3 came in even lower in 18th.
