FIFA 11 knocked off Call of Duty, Gran Turismo, and all Kinect-related titles en route to reclaiming the top spot on the UK charts during the holiday rush.
Now, assuming EA Sports president Peter Moore did not buy and wrap thousands of copies of the game for relatives, friends and strangers, this is quite an accomplishment for FIFA. Even in soccer-crazed England, it's always impressive when a sports game can overtake a behemoth like Call of Duty during a high point of the shopping season.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Kinect Sports and Gran Turismo 5 also cracked the top 10. (Just Dance 2 and Dance Central also reached the top 10 -- I could argue for them being sports-related games, but I won't here.)
