EA stays on top of UK software chart, Capcom's zombies in at 2

FIFA Street is still top of the league on the UK software charts this week. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City was a close contender though, entering the chart at number 2 and knocking Mass Effect down to third place.

Other new entries in the top 20 were Nintendo's Kid Icarus: Uprising at 7, Shogun 2: Total War Fall Of The Samurai at 17 and Ninja Gaiden 3 at 19.

Elsewhere on the chart a few games managed to shoot back up into the top ten thanks to promotions, with Battlefield 3 climbing from 20 to 8, and F1 2011 from 19 to 9. Final Fantasy XIII-2 re-entered at 12, and THQ's Saints Row: The Third at 16.

All chart data is courtesy of GfK Chart-Track.

wow number two? guess that is the benefit of launching the game before the reviews come out.

Nice to see FF XIII-2 get a re-entry as I feel its a much better game than FF XIII and deserves a little more attention. More impressive though is the PC only game Shogun fall of the Samurai getting in the chart, even though apparently PC gaming has been dead for years :)

FF XIII-2 is a lot better than FF XIII

As for Resi, well guess it is possible after all to sell a game on just the name. It`s a shame it sold better than Kid Icarus.
