EA's football title has never been outside the Top 4.
EA's FIFA 13 has retaken the UK Video Game Chart No.1, having last sat at the top in week 42, 2012.
It was a week of heavy sales declines, with FIFA 13's climb thanks to a less dramatic sales drop compared to the competition. Far Cry 3 drops to No.2, Black Ops 2 is at No.3 and Hitman: Absolution holds at No.4.
Warner's Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year also enters the Top 40 for the first time at No.25, as does Saints Row The Third: The Full Package at No.40.
