FIFA 13
This Week's UK X360 Top 20 Charts
Written By
View author's profile

FIFA 13 has entered the UK chart at number one, blowing away the opposition.

While Borderlands 2 recorded the biggest game launch of the year last week, it wasn’t enough to defeat EA Sports’ football juggernaut which shifted one million copies. One million.

It’s an exclusive club. The only other games to hit one million after one week on sale in the UK are Call of Duty: Black Ops, Modern Warfares 2 and 3 and FIFA 12. Nice.

Full chart below.

The Angry Birds trilogy? Really? Isn't it like, $40? Why pay that much when you can get the games on a smartphone for $0.99 each? Surprised it managed to make the top 20 at all.

@1 Because 1) Not all Parents have £600 for a Smartphone for their Kids, or even double that if they have more than one Child & 2) Because Kids love Angry Birds. It's one of the most Marketable Properties right now. I've lost count of the amount of kids i've seen walking around wearing AB T-Shirts & Plushies in their hands. It's a licence to print money for Rovio. THAT'S why it's in the Top 20.

As for Fifa 13, I bought in on Friday, and while it's not groundbreaking like Fifa 08 was (I mentioned Fifa 08, because it was the Fifa that started the turnaround in the PES vs Fifa Battles after PES ruled on the PS2) it's all about "If it ain't broke, improve it" & i'm impressed with the little touches, like the dribbling, first touch control & the Skill Challenges. The sheer amount of stuff to do Online always keeps me busy too.

Its always the same every year, games like Fifa and Call of Duty at the top of the charts when they don't exactly bring anything new to the table, whereas games like Borderlands 2, Tekken and Darksiders are great games that deserve more recognition. Guess people are happy having the same old shit shovelled at them year after year.

I knew FIFA 13 would be top. Nice to see Dead or Alive 5 and Angry Birds Trilogy reach in charts, both games I enjoyed them released last week.

Angry Birds Trilogy is very fun and addict game also it's much better then phone version. :)

@ 13 & 14, ditto.

I'm so glad to see Skyrim and Batman on the list almost a year after they've been released. Such good games they are.

@21 Look at what's different in the new game, nothing. Literally; also have a look at this I think you'll find this most interesting.

@25 couldnt have worded it better myself

@16 so now were not allowed to have an opionion or dislike games? we have to respect and charish every video game that hits the market? yeah gosh now it all makes sense now i guess we should all just charish every single game because someone put some time into making it, i guess were all entitled to respect every movie now too?

@16 I VERY highly doubt your comment about FIFA outselling every video game franchise short of CoD, maybe in the UK and Europe but North America and the countrys with the biggest video game markets in Asia could really care less about football, thus i find your statment highly unlikely just saying.

@DetroitRedWings - I can't take your argument seriously when you have a username like that. Sorry.

@DeepInfern0 - For someone who doesn't care about this game you sure know a lot about it. That or you have nothing better to do with your time.
