Newsbrief: FIFA 13 exploded into the UK sales charts last week, selling more than 1 million units in its opening weekend -- one of only four retail titles to have ever managed that feat.

Call of Duty: Black Ops, Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3 are the only other titles to have sold over 1 million in their opening week at UK retail.

In total, FIFA 13 accounted for 80 percent of all entertainment software revenue last week. The game sold 27 percent more units than FIFA 12 did in its own opening week.

Elsewhere, the long-awaited World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria entered the charts at number four, Rocksmith debuted at number seven, Dead or Alive 5 at number 11, and Angry Birds Trilogy at number 16.
