Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is the UK’s number one for the third week running. The last game from Microsoft to hold the top spot for three consecutive weeks, believe it or not, was Forza 2 back in 2007.

With the Premiership nearly upon us FIFA 13 rises back to #2. Then it’s The Smurfs 2 at #3, up from #5, followed by new entry Tales of Xillia at #4.

Namco must be pleased with that top five placing. It charts highly in the PlayStation 3 chart as well, knocking The Last of Us from the top spot.

And what’s at #5 in the top 40? Why, it’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Elsewhere, Pikmin 3 remains in the chart for a third week – now at #23 – while down the lower part of the chart Dead Space 3, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 and Remember Me re-enter due to recent price cuts.

Now that Remember Me has dropped to the magical £20 mark, we heavily recommend those cautious about it upon release to finally give it a try. It really is quite spectacular to look at, if not quite as impressive in some of the other departments.
