EA Sports has performed its best Cristiano Ronaldo impression, steering FIFA 12 back to the summit of the UK sales charts in style. The popular football franchise managed to leap-frog strong competition from Lollipop Chainsaw and last week’s winner Ghost Recon: Future Soldier to reclaim the top-spot. We’re guessing the soccer sim's increase in popularity has a little something to do with that football tournament on the telly at the moment.
Elsewhere, TV spin-off Game of Thrones climbed into seventh, while Sony’s own excellent Vita exclusive Gravity Rush was forced to sit just outside the top-ten in eleventh. That’s probably not a bad result when you factor in digital sales too.
