UK Video Game Charts: EA Kicks Activision's Monsters in the Nuts
Despite a 33% drop in sales week on week, EA's old, reliable FIFA series (in this case FIFA 13) has triumphed over Activision's newer, toy-tie-in title, Skylanders, in this case Skylanders Giants.

Gfk Chart-Track compiles and reports these sales figures and has also let it be known that its selection of bricks'n'mortar retailers that, "Bethesda drop down a place to No3 with ?Dishonored? (-51%) but see a debut at No5 for the release of ?Doom 3: BFG Edition. Developed by ID Software the horror favourite gets a re-release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC..."

The biggest shock is that Bond is that "Activision?s ?007 Legends? debuts outside of the Top 10 at No12." Reading Svend's review, you can probably work out why.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, Ubisoft?s ?Just Dance 4 (-18%) which climbs two places to No4. Pokémon Black Version 2 (-59%) and Pokémon White Version 2 (-62%) both slip down the chart to No6 and No9.

"?Resident Evil 6? (-52%) also drops from No4 to No7 while ?Borderlands 2? (-33%) holds on to its No8 spot. Take 2?s? ?XCOM: Enemy Unknown ? (-55%) moves down from No7 to No10."

I can't believe people would rather have a minor yearly update and not Dishonored.
