 FIFA 12  takes ninth UK number one as Euro 2012 kicks off

FIFA 12 takes ninth UK number one as Euro 2012 kicks off

June 18, 2012 | By Mike Rose

FIFA 12 once again took to the top of the UK sales charts last week, marking its ninth number one since it launched 38 weeks ago.

For the week ended June 16, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, the soccer title hasn't dropped out of the top five since it first launched last year. Last week's number one, Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, was knocked down to number two.

Chart-Track notes that FIFA 12's boosted popularity comes as the UEFA Euro 2012 tournament kicks off, and that the official Euro 2012 game is downloadable content for FIFA 12, meaning players who want to partake in the game alongside the real-life tournament need to purchase FIFA 12.

There were a couple of new releases in the chart, as Grasshopper's Lollipop Chainsaw launched at number four, and Gravity Rush for PS Vita entered just outside the top 10 at number 11.

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.
