FIFA 12 storms up the UK charts

FIFA 12 can thank Euro 2012 for its return to the top spot on the UK's All Formats chart. That's not to say that the series has ever been far from glory. Since debuting 38 weeks ago, FIFA 12 has never dropped out of the top five and has held the top spot nine times. Nine times? Niiine times, Mrs. Bueller.

That means Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Rockstar's Max Payne 3, which have held first and second, respectively, for the past couple weeks, each slid down one spot.

As for premieres: Zombie actioner Lollipop Chainsaw premiered in fourth, while Gravity Rush debuted in spot 11. The UK top ten families vying for the iron throne are after the break.
