Ghost Recon: Future Soldier hogs top spot for third week

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier ahead of the pack and not about to fall back anytime soon

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier hogs the charts, while the likes of Max Payne 3 and Battlefield 3, along with the newly released Game of Thrones bite the dust

While games titans come and go, some have trouble parting ways with their ‘best sellers’ title.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier retained the top spot this week for the third time in a row, with non-movers Max Payne 3 and FIFA 12 just behind in second and third spot respectively.

The chart-thrashing keeps UBISOFT lodged at the top of the leaderboard, making it the only title from the games publisher to penetrate the top ten.

Of course, the usual suspects such as EA are in the mix with a flurry of titles including Battlefield 3, FIFA 12 and FIFA Street all making the top ten.

New release Game of Thrones could be a threat to the podium next week if the game proves to be as popular as the acclaimed television series.

Playstation 3 (PS3) and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 users will sure be hoping it excites the combat-loving gamers.

As half of the top ten entries in the Gaming Chart are heroic first-person shooters such as Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Sniper Elite V2, it verifies the supremacy of Ghost Recon.

As Dirt Showdown slips to tenth, Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games rises one place to ninth, completing the top ten.
