FIFA 13 has taken the No. 1 spot in the UK charts for the first week in 2013, knocking Christmas No.1 Far Cry 3 off the top spot. EA's latest football sim has never been outside of the top 4 since its release in September 2012.
Further down the list, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Hitman: Absolution, and Need for Speed: Most Wanted stand firm at third, fourth, and fifth, with Halo 4, Just Dance 4, Forza Horizon, Lego The Lord of the Rings, and Skyrim charting at 6 through 10.
For the third week running, no Wii U exclusives made the top 40. Wii U shares of multiplatform titles were also tiny: the Wii U version of Call of Duty: Black Ops II took just a 1 percent share of the game's weekly sales.
