UK Charts – 2012 – Week 5

6 February, 2012 - 5:38 pm by

So another Final Fantasy game, another chart winner. It was hardly surprising, Square Enix have been pushing the game so hard it was likely to break into Fort Knox it was so strong. That said, seeing the Top 5 just being “real” games and the second place spot going to another just released title is a heartening sight to see.

So here’s the Top 20 best selling games this week:

This Week Last Week Title Publisher
1 Final Fantasy XIII-2 Square Enix Europe
2 Metal Gear Solid Hd Collection Konami
3 5 Battlefield 3 Electronic Arts

There’s an awful lot of change this week, which is great as we should really be seeing real games at the top of these charts and not fitness or casual titles. Yes, some casual titles are good, but we really need AAA games to show the world how good gaming truly is.
