To show its age, FIFA 13 was a launch title on the Wii U and is the only FIFA available on the Nintendo platform. Regardless of your love for football games, its most definitely worth pointing out that even if you don't intend to play the game, it will: A: bolster up that Wii U game collection and B: award you some extremely cheap points for your soon to be closed Club Nintendo account.

FIFA 13 has broken the record for longest run in this generation's UK charts Top 10. EA's mega-selling footy title entered the charts at Number 1 way back in September 2012 and managed to stay in the Top 10 for a staggering 48 weeks. On Monday it slipped from 10 to 14.
The game has become the best-selling FIFA yet and we wouldn't be surprised to see it climb back into the Top 10 again before the release of the FIFA 14 on September 17th. With over 3 million copies sold, it even sold more than the latest COD for the first time in four years.Click here to read more...

Thanks for the tip BTL!
This week's top spot has been nicked and bundled into a getaway van by PayDay 2. Overkill Software's budget heist 'em up may rough as a nail file, but its superb cooperative shenanigans make it a thoroughly worthwhile victor. Elsewhere, the same old faces jostle for position as "Awesome August" rattles on, joined by GTA IV. Since Rockstar's upcoming sequel has been making headlines and inducing uncontrollable drool over these last few weeks, we're hardly surprised.
Tales Of Xillia and Pikmin 3 are both plummeting down the charts after their warm pre-order receptions, tumbling to 29th and 37th place respectively. Nintendo have finally sent us a loan review copy for their adorable strategy game, so expect our overdue verdict soon.Click here to read more...
Four weeks at the top of the charts for Naughty Dog as The Last of Us continues to sell well, and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition retains its second spot too. Project X Zone makes its chart debut at #18, and its 3DS commpatriot Animal Crossing: New Leaf stys strong, holding onto a top five place yet again.Click here to read more...
At first glance, you might be forgiven for thinking that nothing has changed. The Last Of Us still rides high in pole position, having garnered some spectacular reviews, while familiar suspects like FIFA 13, Tomb Raider, Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Assassin's Creed III still jostle for our attention.
However, just because it's summer doesn't mean that games aren't still coming out. New entries this week include the retail version of Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition, which barnstorms into a worthy second place, while Deadpool's hilarious tie-in debuts at sixth. Look out for our full review later today. Elsewhere, the excellent Company Of Heroes 2 makes an impressive entry at 10th considering that digital downloads aren't fully factored in, though it still can't quite stack up to yet another Sims 3 expansion.
As always, hit the jump for the UK top ten and links galore.Click here to read more...
This week's biggest new release, Remember Me, clocks in at an admirable third place behind the victorious GRID 2 and FIFA 13. It's a strong showing for the new IP, which was originally own as Adrift before being picked up by Capcom. Skyrim is also refusing to surrender thanks to the release of the DLC-loaded Legendary Edition, clocking in at a solid fourth.
Elsewhere, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon rejoins usual suspects like Far Cry 3, Assassin's Creed 3 and and Tomb Raider. Punters also still seem to be buying Dead Island Riptide, which is odd considering that it's intensely, thunderously mediocre. Xbox 360 owners will be much better off with the cheaper State Of Decay. We expect that The Last Of Us might possibly feature into next week's chart after its UK launch on Friday.
Poor old Fuse, which made its debut last week, has already plummeted off the top 40 into an uncharted (no, not with a capital 'U') position. It's a sad state of affairs for the artist formerly known as Overstrike, which caused controversy for muting its colourful tone in line with focus testing.Click here to read more...
We're entering the calm before the storm, that pre-E3 doldrums where we're looking to the future rather than what's on store shelves right now, but a few new releases have still made a big impression. The home console version of Resident Evil: Revelations has managed to explode into first place, perhaps demonstrating that survival horror might not be such a niche market after all, while Donkey Kong Country Returns makes a solid debut in 5th place.
In fact, 3DS games have had a pretty good week. Luigi's Mansion 2 and Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins also managed to sneak onto top ten, though were predictably beaten by the likes of FIFA 13, Metro: Last Light and the stonkingly mediocre Dead Island: Riptide. Seriously, who's still buying it?
UKIE have also announced some exciting news: a brand new PC download chart that will augment figures going forward. We'll let you know when it starts to affect the weekly charts.Click here to read more...
This week's chart starts with a lighthouse, in that BioShock Infinite has managed to secure the top spot for a second week running. Well, it was always going to. However, newcomer MMO shooter Defiance has debuted in a respectable third place, impressive considering major launch issues for the Xbox 360 version. Elsewhere, Skylanders and Need For Speed: Most Wanted have re-entered the top ten, bothering the likes of Luigi's Mansion 2 and Assassin's Creed III.Click here to read more...
We like the look of FIFA 13 on the Wii U. Despite missing some of the skill moves found on the other formats, there are a few features that could tempt us to use Ninty's ball for this kick around the park. The gamepad screen can be used to tap a specific player for a pass or to execute tackles. It's also useful for lining up free kicks as you can lift up the screen to the TV to view a targeting zone. Using the pad for swapping in subs seems much better than the usual unsightly menus that EA refuse to change too. Check out the gamepad features trailer here.

Is the real-life Premier League getting you down? Tired of it looking like a one-horse race with more in common with the Scottish league than it should? Then fix these atrocities in the gaming world with the latest edition of FIFA. Amazon are selling this season's fix for two pounds less than the other sites. FIFA just about edged it over PES again and it's packed with modes and licenses for the most authentic footy experience on the market.
2012's biggest entertainment properties have finally been ranked in order of sales; encompassing the biggest movies and albums of the year. However, videogames have managed to secure the top two positions, while some of the most successful games of 2012 rub shoulders with the likes of Avengers Assemble, Prometheus and Twilight.
If you want to see how games stack up with other forms of entertainment in the UK, we have the entire top forty below for your perusal.Click here to read more...
Crytek are still ruling the roost in this week's charts, with Nanosuiting up very much the order of the day in Crysis 3. Elsewhere, the usual suspects are still loitering about and, although it got leapfrogged by FIFA 13 for second place, it's nice to see Revengeance retain another top three spot.Click here to read more...
Aliens: Colonial Marines has predictably found its way to the top of this week's charts due to its fantastic gameplay, wonderful authenticity, brilliant set pieces, awesome flamethrower-equipped power loaders... wait, what? Sorry, I was confusing the finished product with the demo they showed me last year. You know, the one that bears absolutely no resemblance to the finished product in terms of graphics or gameplay. Expect a bug hunt, not a stand up fight, and don't engage without finding a hefty deal first.
EA are having a great time of it, what with Dead Space 3, FIFA 13 and NFS: Most Wanted bringing home the bacon, and the excellent Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed continues to do well for SEGA. Sadly, Ni No Kuni and DmC continue to plummet towards the sales abyss... are singleplayer-only games in trouble?
As always, we've got the official UK top ten after the break.Click here to read more...
Simply Games have a very tempting offer going for the latest FIFA game on the PC. All you need is an Origin account and you could be playing the game today. The attacking AI has been improved and the new First Touch control will be much appreciated by skilled players. PES is closing the gap, but FIFA still just about edged it for the title once again.
