Call of Duty: Ghosts stays in place to complete the top five.

South Park: The Stick of Truth drops two places to sixth, ahead of new release Trials Fusion.

Season Ticket Trade In by

GAME Offers Disappointed Football Fans Interesting Trade-In

UK retailer GAME are offering fans of ‘underachieving’ football teams the chance to trade in their season ticket for a copy of FIFA 14, Pro Evolution 2014 or Football Manager 2014.

The offer is only open to fans of relegation battling Cardiff, West Bromwich Albion, Fulham and Sunderland, along with underachieving Manchester United and cash-strapped Hearts of Midlothian.

In order to get a copy of either game fans must take their season ticket to participating stores before 30th April 2014.

However, given that a season ticket can cost anything from £600 to £3,000 GAME shouldn’t expect people queuing out the doors – and, no, it’s still a few days until April Fools.
