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.
