THQ secures timely UK no. 1 with UFC Undisputed 3
Wrestling franchise makes waves as Amalur drops from 1 to 12
THQ has taken the number one spot in the UK all format software chart, providing a glimmer of hope for the troubled publisher after a testing period.
It's the first top slot for the company since the launch of Homefront last year, despite not selling as well in its opening week as its predecessor, which only managed second place.
Undisputed is the only new entry in the week's top 40, but there has been plenty of movement with existing titles. Kingdoms of Amalur, which was last week's number one, has slipped out of the top ten to 12, after dropping 63 per cent of its sales. FIFA 12 is back to second from fifth, whilst Modern Warfare 3 is in third.
Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games sees the combined benefit of a 3DS release and a Wii discount, jumping from 10th to fourth in the chart.
