UK Chart: FIFA 13 back on top

Updated: Footy title beats Far Cry 3 and Black Ops 2 to the No.1 spot

FIFA 13 has reclaimed the top spot on the UK all formats chart.


The game hasn't placed outside of the top four since its release 15 weeks ago, although it hasn't charted at No.1 since week 42 of 2012, according to retail monitor Chart-Track. FIFA 13 has now held the top spot on five occasions.

Last week's best-seller Far Cry 3 drops to No.2, ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Hitman Absolution and Need for Speed Most Wanted.

[UPDATE: Trade body UKIE and sales monitor Chart-Track originally said this morning that Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, which released back in week 41 of 2010, had re-entered the chart at No.10 following massive price promotion. That data was inaccurate and the chart has now been re-issued, showing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim at No.10.]

Once again, no Wii U exclusive games made the weekly top 40.
