UK chart: Dishonored denied top spot by FIFA 13

Pokémon, XCOM in top ten, but Fable: The Journey disappoints in 37th.

Dishonored has entered the chart in second place, as FIFA 13 defended its spot atop the UK charts from a barrage of new releases.

Bethesda's dark and stealthy adventure did manage the accolade of being the biggest launch for new IP so far this year (a title previously held by Sleeping Dogs). It's worth remembering that digital copies sold are not counted by UK numbers company Chart-Track.

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 entered the top ten in third and fifth, respectively - although their combined sales would still not have beaten Dishonored's spot in second.

Resident Evil 6 sales fell by 78 per cent, sinking from second to fourth.

Just Dance 4 was sixth, XCOM entered the chart in seventh, while Borderlands 2, F1 2012 and Skyrim filled out the rest of the top ten.

Other new entries this week included WRC 3: FIA World Rally Championship, which turned up in 27th place. Kinect-exclusive Fable: The Journey disappointed however, turning up in 37th.
