FIFA 13 makes it four weeks at the top of the All Formats All Prices UK video game chart, preventing Activision's Sylanders Giants from claiming the top spot.

The Toys for Bob developed sequel has, however, performed much better at launch than the first game which charted at No.16 in Week 41 last year.

Dishonored drops one place to No.3, Just Dance 4 slides to No.4 and the low priced Doom 3 BFG Edition is new at No.5.

Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 are down to No.6 and No.9, respectively, Resi 6 is at No.7, Borderlands 2 takes eighth and XCOM falls to tenth place.

Activision's 007 Legends debuts at No.12, whilst Microsoft's Dance Central 3 is nowhere to be seen in the All Formats Top 40, making its debut at No. 20 in the Xbox 360 chart.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Expect Skylanders to hold well until the new year, with the title sure to be one of the hot gifts this Christmas.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Forza: Horizon will make serious challenges to the No.1 spot this time next week, with the latest Professor Layton and FIFA Manager titles also likely to chat inside the Top 20.

Xcom sales will certainly mostly come from steam, so to be still the top ten in the retail chart after 2 week is promising.
Also is MoH:WF really this week? It feels to early and I only just noticed an ad campaign start this week. The must want to get it a head start against CoD this year.

Hmmm... I could perhaps see XCom as a slow-burner over the winter period. I hope it is, at least. Cannot believe a football game trumps all, still, though.

I must admit, I did think Skylanders would come out on top. Just goes to show...

Xcom 10th, not great but these don't include Stream sales, hopefully that makes up a decent amount of sales.

Dishonoured 3rd is a good placement for a new IP going against the new Skylanders and recently released Fifa, any other month Dishonoured could of been first.
