Monday, 1st October 2012 08:38 GMT By Dave Cook

FIFA 13 has blitzed to the top of the UK top 40 chart, knocking Borderlands 2 off after just one week.

Borderlands 2 was, however, the biggest UK game launch of the year last week, so it has performed well despite only holding onto the top spot for a week. FIFA 13 has rolled right in and knocked everyone down a peg, selling one million copies in its first week.

Aside from Call of Duty, Black Ops, Modern Warfare 2 & 3, FIFA 12 is the only game in the UK ever to hit that magic million.

    <3 FIFA. That, CoD and Halo are the games that always bring the biggest queues to the retail stores.

    Still surprised at the GW2 drop. Even going back on sale hasn't help keep it in the retail charts long. I assume it's because most of the sales are digital.
