The UK's gone football mad this week as FIFA 12 swoops in t take the top spot off of Gears of War 3. EA Sports' latest entry in the long-running footie franchise has shaken things up this year, with FIFA veterans likely to be surprised at the slower, more ponderous style of play that the new upgrades appear to favour. We'll have a big, fat, in-depth review of the online and offline features within the next 24 hours. FIFA 12's release comes in as the third biggest launch in the UK ever, sitting pretty behind the last two Call of Duty titles - Black Ops and MW2 - and just in front of GTA IV.
It's good to see the Team Ico HD Collection slip into the top ten on release, and Black Ops sneaks back up there too, coming in at number ten as players no doubt scramble to get some stats on the board as the Elite beta continues and Modern Warfare 3 draws ever nearer.
