With no new retail releases due for almost the entire month, the UK video game sales charts are frozen solidly in place this week.
Thatâ€™s left Black Ops III at number one in both charts, followed by Battlefront, FIFA 16, and all the other usual suspects.
What movement there has been is all due to shop discounts, with Battlefield 4â€™s return to the all formats top 10 due almost entirely to cheap copies of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.
The lack of excitement in the charts is entirely normal for this time of year, and comes despite February and March being unusually busy for new releases.
Although there are plenty of interesting download-only games in January the first actual retail releases of 2016 are not until next Friday, with Resident Evil Origins Collection (containing the Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0 remakes), Life Is Strange Limited Edition, PokÃ©mon Rumble World for 3DS, and Lego Dimensions Ghostbusters Level Pack.
After that the only other January releases are Lego Marvelâ€™s Avengers, Final Fantasy Explorers, SÃ©bastien Loeb Rally Evo, The Legend Of Heroes: Trails Of Cold Steel, and This War Of Mine: The Little Ones.
Apart from the Lego game, most of those would be lucky to make it into either top 40 at any other time of the year. But with sales cooling down after Christmas we should hopefully see our first new chart entry in two weeks time.
