The last UK chart of 2012 saw Far Cry 3 taking the top spot, but this week it’s back down to #2 with FIFA 13 rising back up to #1.
Since release FIFA 13 has been on the top of the chart no less than five times and it has yet to drop below #4.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Hitman Absolution and Need for Speed: Most Wanted finish off the top five, in that order.
There’s still a notable lack of Wii U-exclusives in the top 40. We haven’t seen one now since Nintendo Land at #39 during mid-December. Chart-Track tells us that just one percent of all Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 copies sold last week were on Wii U. It’s not all gloom though – nine percent of all Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed sold last week were in fact for Nintendo’s new console. SEGA’s racer is at #12 currently, up from #16.
There isn’t much else going on in the top 40 aside from Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition and Saints Row The Third: The Full Package entering at #25 and #40 respectively. Although these two have been out for some time now, this week marks their first chart appearances.
