FIFA 12, the very polished and sometime incredibly funny football simulation from the EA Sports division of Electronic Arts, has managed to become the first number one of the United Kingdom video game chart for the year, while the rest of the top ten has remained very similar to that of last week.
FIFA 12 keeps the top spot and could stay there for quite some time, maybe as far as the launch of Mass Effect 3 during March.
Second place now belongs to Battlefield 3, the military first person shooter from developer DICE and publisher Electronic Arts, which has managed to beat its biggest rival Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, from Infinity Ward and Activision Blizzard, into third place, down one over the previous week.
Just Dance 3, the rhythm game from Ubisoft, has continued to do well and seems to be glued to fourth spot in the United Kingdom chart while The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the open world first person action role playing game from Bethesda, has made one of the great comebacks of the week by moving up to fifth place coming from eight.
But it is Zumba Fitness, the exercise and dancing title from 505 Games, made the biggest jump forward by landing in sixth place in the United Kingdom after coming from nineteenth.
Need for Speed: The Run, the racing game from Black Box and Electronic Arts, has kept its seventh position while Saints Row: The Third, from developer Volition and publisher THQ, is in eight place, falling back two places from sixth.
RAGE, the first person shooter from id Software, is now in ninth place after spending a lot of time outside of the top ten while Assassin’s Creed: Revelations from Ubisoft saw the biggest slide in the top ten, closing down the chart after sitting in fifth last week.
