Codemasters' Grid 2 holds on as a comfortable No.1 despite a 52 per cent drop in sales over its debut week.

FIFA 13 also retains its No.2 spot for a third week, meaning Capcom's Remember Me must settle for a third place opening. Bethesda's Skyrim Legendary Edition is new at No.4, followed by Far Cry 3 which drops to No.5.

Elsewhere, Resident Evil: Revelations dives from No.5 to No.16 and Metro: Last Light slips from No.7 to No.17.
