It's a fifth consecutive week at No.1 for Sony and Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, which is now just one week away from matching the unbroken runs of FIFA 12 and Black Ops 2.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf is up to No.2, followed by new entry Mario and Luigi: Dream Team at No.3. FIFA 13 drops one place to No.4, with Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition also slipping to No.5.
The critically mauled Aliens: Colonial Marines benefits from big price cuts to climb 12 places to No.10, whilst 2K's Civ 5: Brave New World is new at No.39 – No.2 in the PC only chart.
It's worth bearing in mind, however, that the chart doesn't track digital sales. The game likely fared somewhat better online.
