UK Video Game Charts: Forza Beats FIFA

Here we go then, this week’s UK Video Game Charts. As could have been easily predicted, Forza 4 has taken the top spot from FIFA 12 with Ubisoft’s Just Dance 3 shimmying into third.

PES 12 only manages fifth, after FIFA’s record breaking launch and Zumba Fitness clings on in the top ten.

It’s nice to see more niche titles like Dark Souls and Jonah Lomu Rugby making an impact on the charts at this time of year but expect it to be nothing but blockbusters by this time next month.

  1. Wow I never thought Forza would top off Fifa seeing that it’s one Platform and took fifa out well done to Microsoft but soon very soon…. Battlefield will come in and knock them down xD

    • You do no that raceing is really big in Europe? Forza 4 won’t top GT5s sells but will sell very good.

      And this is Fifas 3rd week.

    • That is indeed impressive mate , anything that can knock a new FIFA off the charts so soon after its release deserves plaudits . This game has made me consider an xbox but i must resist as my wallets empty.

  2. Slightly unexpected. As great as the Forza series is, as Dell pointed out, its an exclusive and Fifa is one of the most popular multi-format titles around.
    It should be all change each week for a while now though. Batman will take top next week, then Battlefield3 the week after, then Uncharted 3 then MW3. Called it :)

    • Don’t think Batman will top it as alot of gamers are p***** off about the online pass =P but it could force them to buy Day one purchase so maybe your right, well see how the next 4 games come along. Oh after MW I really hope Skyrim tops the chart (assuming it’s released after MW?)

      • Yeah I was hoping to get a preowned copy of Batman but I wanna play the Catwoman bits so they kinda have me by the nuts… lol.

        Forgot about Skyrim. That’s bound to take top spot on the 11th :)

      • The people who won’t buy Batman for it’s online pass is a very small %.

  3. Cool. but shouldn’t it be RAGE – BETHESDA SOFTWORKS, instead of RAGE BETHESDA – SOFTWORKS ?

  4. I’m not surprised that Forza 4 is number 1 as judging from the reviews it is an excellent game. :-)

    I thought ID developed Rage and Bethesade only published it? ;)

    I suspect the charts will explode next month due to the amount of games that are coming out then. Zumba is falling but i was horrifed to discover that it is getting a sequel. :O

    • With any luck Zumba will be out of the top 10 in the next couple of weeks, but as you say there’s another on it’s way Nooooooooo!

      I wonder where it stands in the ‘top selling games of the year’ chart?

  5. Well Forza 4 did have loads of advertisements

  6. Im happy Dark Souls is still doing alright. Great game :)

  7. I’m surprised to see Forza has knocked Fifa 12 off the top. Didn’t expect that. Good on T10 though.
