FIFA 13 retains UK Gaming Chart crown

FIFA 13 has retained its position at the top of the UK All Format Gaming Chart, claiming its sixth week of chart success an impressive 15 weeks after the now distant September 28 FIFA 13 release date.

Having returned to the top of the UK All Format Gaming Chart last week, EA Sports’ latest football offering has retained its footing as the UK’s highest selling game in a week of few releases, once again seeing off competition from an unchanged top five.

Whilst Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 once again followed up FIFA 13 to round out the week ending January 12 in second spot, the podium positions remain unchanged with the Treyarch developed, Activision published Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 rounding out the top three.

With Hitman Absolution still holding strong in fourth position, the déjà vu of a gaming chart top five is completed by another EA offering, this time in the form of the Criterion developed Need for Speed Most Wanted.

A low profile week for new releases in which SEGA’s Anarchy Reigns was the highest new entry, hitting the charts in a lowly 15th spot, Just Dance 4 was the week’s first climber, jumping one spot to round out the seven day sales period in sixth.

Suffering from the one spot position switch, Halo 4 dropped to seventh in the UK All Format Gaming Chart whilst the Sports Interactive crafted Football Manager 2013 jumped five places to eighth. With no further new entries making the top 35, the week’s top 10 was rounded out by The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and LEGO The Lord of the Rings in spots nine and ten respectively.
