Epic's shooter can't hold off EA's football juggernaut.
EA's FIFA 12 has taken the top spot in this week's All Formats All Prices video game chart. FIFA's expected chart dominance has pushed Microsoft and Epic's Gears of War 3 down to No. 2. The rest of the top 5 is made up of F1 2011, the evergreen Zumba Fitness, and Dead Island.
The only other new entry in the top 10 is the excellent Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection for PlayStation 3. Activision's disappointing X-Men Destiny charted at No. 18.

FIFA 12 entering at No. 1 was entirely expected, but Gears of War 3 has done well to hold off F1 2011. A chart entry at No. 7 for Ico and Shadow of the Colossus isn't too bad for two games that never managed great commercial success first time around.
