EA still top as Medal of Honor shoots down FIFA

29/Oct/2012

After 4 weeks of ‘FIFA 13’ domination we have a new No1 this week (still from EA) thanks to ‘Medal of Honor: Warfighter’ at No1 for 360/PS3/PC as the 14th installment in the series


‘MOH: Warfighter’ (developer Danger Close) is a direct sequel to the series reboot ‘Medal of Honor’ from October 2010, which remains the fastest week 1 seller in the series and the third biggest overall in the UK (behind 2002’s ‘MOH Frontline’ and 2003’s ‘MOH Rising Sun’). The aforementioned ‘FIFA 13’ only drops to No2 (-17%) and the title remains comfortably ahead of all other FIFA titles in terms of sales units over the opening 5 weeks, some 20% ahead of FIFA 12, the previous best-seller. Microsoft’s ‘Forza Horizon’ (Playground Games/Turn 10 Studios) can be considered the 5th installment in the long-running ‘Forza Motorsport’ Xbox series and debuts here at No3.

Activision Blizzard’s ‘Skylanders Giants’ (-43%) drops 2 places to No4, Bethesda’s ‘Dishonored’ (-48%) drops 2 to No5 and Ubisoft’s ‘Just Dance 4’ is also down 2 to No6 (+1%). After that we have the remaining 2 big new releases of week 43, with Nintendo’s 3DS ‘Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask’ debuting at No8 and Mind Candy’s DS/3DS ‘Moshi Monsters: Moshlings Theme Park’ right behind at No9.
