UK CHARTS: Rage and Dark Souls enter Top Three

The new releases are coming thick and fast but nothing this week is able to stop FIFA 12 claiming its second No.1 of the year in the UKIE Gfk Chart-Track All Formats Top 40.

Incredibly, FIFA 12’s second week on the market is so big as to claim 13th in the all-time weekly unit sales chart, despite a 68 per cent week-on-week drop in sales.

Second place is grabbed by Bethesda’s long-awaited id shooter Rage, while third position is claimed by another chart debutant – Namco Bandai’s Dark Souls.

There are two other new entries this week, with 2K Sports’ NBA 2K12 entering the listings in 12th and Konami’s El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron finally hits the Top 40, a month on from its UK release.

Here’s the Top 20 for the week ending October 8th 2011:

1. FIFA 12 (EA)
