 FIFA 12  claims sixth week at top of UK charts
FIFA 12 claims sixth week at top of UK charts
January 16, 2012 | By Mike Rose




For the fourth week in a row, FIFA 12 claimed the top of UK software sales charts last week, with six weeks at the top of the charts in total.

For the week ended January 14, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, sales of the title dropped 54 percent week-over-week, although it still managed to hold the top spot, due in part to the fact that there were no new releases in the top 10.

Just Dance 3 climbed the charts to number two despite a 21 percent drop in sales, while The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim moved up the chart to claim the number three position.

Pipeworks and 505 Games' Zumba Fitness series did especially well last week, with the original release at number six, and the sequel moving up the charts to number seven.

The likes of Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 hung around in the charts, while the only new release which nearly entered the top 10 was Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 -- it claimed number 12.

Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.
