The colossal FIFA 13 defended against strong competition from Resident Evil 6 to retain the UK chart top spot this week.

Resi 6, second, was released last Tuesday and recorded the fourth biggest launch of 2012. Resi 5 debuted in first place but launched well away from the autumn mega-brands in March.

Just Dance 4 debuted this week in fourth. The brilliant Borderlands 2 managed to take third.

F1 2012 was fifth, followed perhaps bizarrely by a basketball game, NBA 2K13, which entered sixth.

Guitar teaching music game Rocksmith held strung in seventh (sorry), followed by Skyrim, PES 2013 and Sleeping Dogs.
