Medal of Honor breaches all formats games chart
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.
