Here's what Chart-Track says:

"Released on Tuesday, sales were split 62% on XB360, 34% PS3, 3% PS4 and the rest on PC and Wii U. Despite Sony's new console not due in stores until November 29th, Activision Blizzard released the PS4 version alongside the current formats. The PS4 version performs spectacularly well for a game that consumers will not be able to actually play for another 3 weeks, managing to outsell the PS3 versions of Assassin's Creed IV and Battlefield 4. Beaten to No1 by Assassin's Creed IV (-63%) last week, Battlefield 4 ( -54%) holds on to No2, outselling the popular Ubisoft title by 6,000 units across their first two weeks of launch.

"FIFA 14 (-16%) and GTA V (-31%) both slip one place to No's 4 and 5 respectively, while Batman: Arkham Origins (-55%) also drops one place to No6, despite PC, Wii U and 3DS versions new out this week. WWE 2K14 (-57%) holds on to No7 ahead of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition (-3%) at No8 and Football Manager 2014 (-65%) which falls three places to No9. Skylanders Swap Force (+2%) is at No10, the only Top 10 title to increase in sales this week.

"There is only one other new title to make the Top 40, Nintendo's sixth Professor Layton game and final part of the latest trilogy of titles Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy, new at No13. Previous Layton game Miracle Mask debuted at No7 last year."
