Final Fantasy XIII-2 tops UK charts in opening weekend

In a week of multiple new releases, Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIII-2 topped the UK software sales charts ahead of a couple of other big-name Japanese franchises. For the week ended February 4, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, the latest in the Final Fantasy series managed to finally knock FIFA 12 off the number one spot. Other new releases also fared well, including Metal Gear Solid HD Collection at number two and Soulcalibur V at number five. Elsewhere, Battlefield 3 climbed back up the charts with a 47 percent increase in sales week-over-week, while multiplayer shooter rival Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 stuck around at number seven. It's notable that this is the first top 10 chart in a while to not include any Zumba Fitness games at all -- indeed, both the original game and the sequel dropped out of the top 10. Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.
