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.
