EA's shooter storms into number one leaving FIFA 13, Forza Horizon and Professor Layton in its wake.

Kudos to EA and Danger Close for a gritty campaign which has seen Medal of Honor: Warfighter hit the ground running despite a mixed reception upon its recent release.
By going what even Dishonored couldn’t do in dislodging FIFA 13, it just goes to show that there’s nothing like a barnstorming shooter when it comes to racking up sales. Elsewhere Microsoft will be well pleased as Forza Horizon gets a podium finish, while Nintendo too will be happy to see that the leap to 3DS hasn’t curtailed sales of Professor Layton (while presumably shifting quite a 3DS handhelds on the side).
Predictions for next week: Assassin’s Creed 3.
