    Final Fantasy 13-2 has entered the UK all-formats chart in first place, ending FIFA 12's reign on top.

    Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, a trilogy of classic MGS games now made a little prettier, arrived in second.

    Fellow new entry SoulCalibur 5 was fifth, behind Battlefield 3 and FIFA.

    Last week's other new game release, limb-detachment shooter NeverDead, failed to find footing in the top 40 altogether.

    That left Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, Just Dance 3 and Saints Row: The Third to fill out the remainder of the top 10.

    The full chart will follow.

    Gotta love how some people can say that a game is s**t without even playing it (OMGZ TEH VIDZ ARETH SHIiii!!). Seriously.

    Now just waiting for my game to arrive >__

    Thank goodness. Toriyama said from his own mouth there will be a DLC ending.

    Is this just sales for the week? I'm just wondering, and no, I'm not trying to diss it.

    I'm surprised at the sales for both consoles. I thought the PS3 would sell drastically more than the XBOX 360. 12% is still pretty good though.

    Square Enix only advertised the 360 version over here.
    New titles get released on Friday here so Friday and Saturday.

    Where's the missing 4%? 54 + 42 = 96.. Somehow that just hit my eyes pretty badly considering the game is only for the PS3/360. Or is there a Wii port somewhere? :creep:

    I'm genuinely surprised by this given the general ambivalence towards the series these days, and the laughably poor music used in the tv advert.

    How is this possible? Did no one buy any games this week? I like FF but I don't know anyone else here who does.

    How in the world is MGS:HD Collection second? i searched four different stores and no-one had it, the staff at Gamestation even admitted that they only received 2-3 copies of the game because of its lack of demand
