FIFA jumps in at number 1 in UK charts but for how long?

EA’s ever popular FIFA 13 has jumped into pole position in the UK all formats software sales chart and is likely to remain there for some time as football is an extremely dominating force. With Borderlands 2 being toppled and Resident Evil 6 likely to join the fray next week, will FIFA 13 show them who’s boss?
