Train2Game students don’t see any change at the top of the UK Charts this week, with FIFA Street holding onto No.1 for the second week running. It marks EA’s ninth week at No.1 this year, with five of their titles having reached top spot.
Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City is this week’s highest new entry at No.2, and the only non-EA title in the top five. Former No.1 Mass Effect 3 slips one to No.3, FIFA 12 holds No.4, while SSX drops to No.5.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 jumps four places to No.6, sitting one place ahead of new entry Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS. Battlefield 3 jumps 12 places to re-enter the top ten at No.8, and it’s followed by F1 2011 which moves up ten to No.9.
