FIFA 13, the football simulation title from EA Sports, has managed to take over the United Kingdom chart for its first week on sale, despite the fact that it had only been available for a few days when the top was made.
For the chart tracking the period up to September 29, FIFA 13 has managed to sell more than 1 million copies in the United Kingdom and the game seems on track to smash records for the franchise in the coming weeks. Borderlands 2
, the number one of the previous week, has been pushed to second spot but continues to sell well.
The entire top ten is feeling the effects of the FIFA 13 launch, with F1 2012, the Formula 1 simulation, sliding down one place in order to settle in the last place of the podium.
Another new launch, the Mists of Pandaria expansion for the World of Warcraft MMO, has managed to take fourth place during the week, while Pro Evolution Soccer 2013, another football title from Konami, has taken over fifth position after sitting in third during the previous seven-day period.
Sleeping Dogs, the open-world action game from developer United Front Games and publisher Square Enix, is continuing its solid run and now sits in sixth place, ahead of Rocksmith, the Ubisoft-made title which claims to be able to teach players real guitar skills.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the open-world first-person action role-playing game from Bethesda, made a surprising comeback almost one year after it was first launched to land in eight, while LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, from Warner Bros. Interactive, is in ninth, down four places.
The United Kingdom top ten is closed down by New Super Mario Bros. 2 from Nintendo.
Little Big Planet for the Vita, Dead or Alive 5, Guild Wars 2, Forza Motorsport 4, Max Payne 3 and Tekken Tag Tournament are out of the chart.
