Final Fantasy XIII-2 Tops UK Sales Charts, MGS HD Collection Follows Close Behind

February 6, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

FIFA 12 has finally been dethroned after sitting atop the UK sales charts for several weeks in a row. In its place is Square Enix’s latest installment of their popular role-playing franchise, Final Fantasy XIII-2. Trailing close behind is Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, as DICE’s Battlefield 3 climbs up to third.

EA Sports’ FIFA 12 has slipped from first to fourth, with the recently released Soul Calibur V nipping at its heels.

Be sure to check out the full top 10 list below:

  1. Final Fantasy XIII-2
  2. Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
  3. Battlefield 3
  4. FIFA 12
  5. Soul Calibur 5
  6. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
  7. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  8. The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
  9. Just Dance 3
  10. Saints Row: The Third

Resident Evil Revelations which was holding strong in sixth place last week slipped off of the top 10 entirely – one would think that the recent announcement of Resident Evil 6 would be enough to motivate more gamers to pick up the 3DS title from Capcom. Then again, maybe gamers are saving their pennies for a PlayStation Vita.
