Halo 4 debuted at No.1 in the UK video game chart, pushing down last week’s PS3 and Xbox 360 release Assassin’s Creed III after just one week at the top.

Halo 4 is the first game in the franchise not to be developed by series creator Bungie. According to Chart Track, it ranked as the 18th biggest SKU launch in UK based on week one sales, but the sales were lower than both Halo 3 (15th biggest) and Halo: Reach (12th biggest).

Assassin’s Creed III slips to No.2 with a 73 per cent drop off in sales, FIFA 13 is at No.3, Need for Speed: Most Wanted climbs to No.4 and Football Manager 2013 takes fifth place.
