Skylanders Giants causes a rumble at retail

FIFA 13 sits on top of the UK chart for a fourth week running this week, fending off three new arrivals.

Skylanders Giants enters at a very respectable #2. Just to show how much momentum the franchise has gained, the original Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure only entered the chart at #16 exactly a year ago.

DOOM 3: BFG Edition makes #5, while poor reviews of 007: Legends – such as Eurogamer’s 3/10 – do not appear to have harmed sales to a significant extent as it arrives at #12.

As mentioned in last week’s round-up, we were curious as to how Dance Central 3 would perform. The answer is terribly – it hasn’t managed to enter the top 40 at all. Fable: The Journey also leaves the top 40 this week, after entering at a lowly #37.
