UK Charts: First Chart of 2013 Sees FIFA 13 at the Top

GodisaGeek: "The first number one of 2013 in the UK Video Game charts is FIFA 13.

The tremendous Far Cry 3 only drops one place to second, and in actual fact, the rest of the top 5 stays exactly the same as the last chart of 2013. Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition has somehow snuck right back into the top 10 (congrats, 2K and Gearbox) whilst the rest of the charts are pretty much the same as we reported last week, give or take a few moves." (3DS, Far Cry 3, FIFA 13, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Update The table has been resent from UKIE, and is now correct. The anomaly was Borderlands GotY edition.

Counting 3 exclusives on that top 20. All 3 Xbox 360, the console "with no games."

Agree UK is still into the 360 big time.

Which is odd, when most people consider Europe to be the "PS3 Zone" !

US and UK are where the Xbox sells the most. Everywhere else in Europe and the rest of the world is on team PS3. This is why you almost always see Xbox ahead of PS3 there and why SP3 sales are almost always higher worldwide.

No one said that Xbox has "NO GAMES" as Hingle, whom loves to praise 360 and bash PS3 and Vita (Rarely see any comments about PC or Nintendo) loves to claim all the time. Many users just say they wish MS would support more original IPs and quit relying on their 4 franchises they repeat over and over again. Well really 3 now, because Fable has been pretty much killed off with 3 going into Heroes and Journey

Good to see FORZA HORIZON in the top 10. Sony really needs to work on Pushing the PS3 in the UK. Ive not seen a LBPK add and only a few PSASBR adds on the TV.

Good to see the 360 is still doing well here though.

There's been ads for both games in trade magazines, but yeah - not sure I've seen much for LBP Karting full stop.
