FIFA 13 held the cup this week to keep its second spell at the top of the UK charts alive. After Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's domination over the holidays, the venerable soccer franchise's return to No. 1 is very much business as usual.

An unchanged top five represents a post-Christmas lull for retail as it catches its breath from the maelstrom of the holidays. The only major release of the week, Platinum Games' Anarchy Reigns, didn't quite make the top ten, instead debuting at 16th. That means the one new face from last week's top ten is Football Manager 2013, possibly clinging to the studs of FIFA 13's resurgence.
