Brand new top three for UK as LBP Vita makes sixth

Borderlands 2 in first, followed by F1 2012 and PES 2013

Borderlands 2 has lived up to its excellent critical reception by dropping straight into first in the UK retail charts, followed by fellow new releases F1 2012 and PES 2013.

Gearbox's latest shifted the large majority of its units on 360, a pattern reversed on the PS3-friendly PES 2013, with F1 proving largely format neutral.

Previous number one, Square-Enix's Sleeping Dogs, slips to fourth - followed by LEGO Batman 2 and LittleBigPlanet for the Vita, another new entry and the platform's most prominent chart position for some time.

Impressive sales result for Little Big Planet Vita, considering it excludes the excellent PSN offering (30 with both the pre-order costumes).

Let's hope it is the start of things to come, and not the high point...
