Naughty Dog's PS3 exclusive The Last of Us holds on at No.1 despite a 46 per cent drop in sales week on week. This means the acclaimed survival game becomes the first game of the year to hold the No.1 spot for four consecutive weeks; BioShock Infinite and Dead Island: Riptide each managed three weeks at the top.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition holds at No.2, followed by FIFA 13, Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Assassin's Creed 3.

Namco Bandai's Project X Zone for 3DS is a new entry at No.18, whilst Koch Media's Ride to Hell charts at No.35 after failing to chart on its debut week.
