EA’s FIFA 13 dominated the UK sales charts last week for the fourth straight week, easily holding onto the top spot despite the launch of another high profile video game.

Activision’s Skylanders Giants debuted in second place in UKIE GfK Chart-Track’s all-formats UK top 20 chart, pushing the prior week’s FIFA 13 challenger, Dishonoreddown to third place. Although we don’t have any exact sales numbers to confirm the spread, the individual-formats chart shows that EA’s soccer powerhouse easily held onto its position as king of the UK software hill. FIFA 13 on the Xbox 360 and PS3 claimed the top two spots on the individual chart, with Skylanders Giants landing in 3rd, 5th, and 10th, on the Wii, Xbox 360, and PS3 respectively.

Activision’s 007 Legends also debut last week, however, its 12th place finish in the all-formats chart was not much to write home about.

The UK Top 20 Software All-Formats Chart for the week ending October 20, 2012 is as follows:

1. FIFA 13 (EA)
2. Skylanders Giants (Activision)
3. Dishonored (Bethesda)
