While game sales in the UK grew to £1.9bn last year, they couldn't stop Adele from steamrollering to number one as the best selling entertainment property of 2015.
The popular singer's new album, 25, sold a whopping 2,604,850 units, surpassing the second best seller and which was FIFA 16, which itself outdid the competition from Black Ops III with 2,516,079 units sold in the UK alone, proving that it is by far the biggest franchise around.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III sold 1,928,813 units, while Fallout 4 sold 1,126,929. The only other game to sell over 1 million was Star Wars: Battlefront, with 1,018,884.

ERA CEO Kim Bayley said, "Ten years ago the entertainment business was on the edge of a precipice. Piracy was rampant and there were few legal alternatives. Thanks to huge investments by the likes of Apple and Steam and Netflix and Spotify, there has been a significant turnaround. From indie record stores to video on demand, from High Street chains to streaming services, internet retail and supermarkets, there has never been such a wide variety of ways for people to get the music, video and games they want."
