UK Top 40: Forza 4 fights off FIFA 12

PES lands fifth, Spider-man 39th.

Xbox 360 exclusive Forza Motorsport 4 has entered the charts top, kicking football phenomenon FIFA 12 down to second place.

FIFA 12's sales fell by 62 per cent in its third week, while Forza 4 was the biggest Xbox 360 racing launch ever.

The last seven days saw seven other new launches impact the chart. Just Dance 3 opened in third - two places above FIFA rival PES 2012, which could only manage a fifth place debut.

Rage dropped to fourth, while Gears of War 3 shuffled down into sixth. Dark Souls, Zumba, F1 2011 and Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge made up the rest of the top ten.

Outside the top flight, Namco aerial action title Ace Combat: Assault Horizon landed into 12th.

Frank West-starring Dead Rising 2 spin-off Off The Record performed worse for Capcom, snapping into 14th place.

Further down the chart, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure squeaked into 16th place while, caught in his own safety net, Spider-Man: Edge of Time bounced into 39th.

The full chart lies below.
