Dead Island retains UK number one for second week

PS3 sku makes up 47% of sales, beating Resistance 3 in PS3 chart

Techland's Dead Island has maintained its leadership of the UK's sales chart, with the only new entry this week coming from Sony's God of War HD Collection Volume II at 35th.

An otherwise relatively static chart sees Resistance 3 trade places with Driver to take third, depsite being outsold in the PS3 only chart by Dead Island - which increased its PS3 sales from 29 per cent of the total to 47 per cent. Dead Island has now sold more in two weeks at market than any other Deep Silver game has in its entire lifetime.

Space Marine retains second place despite a drop in sales of 52 per cent. The only top ten titles to see sales figures rise are the two LEGO titles, Pirates of the Caribbean and Harry Potter.

Good on Techland. I've been a fan of their games for years now but they've always been heavily underrated in the general gaming landscape. Glad to see them getting some recognition. Guess that it goes to show how important marketing is...

I'm not sure how it's managed to stay at #1. According to my local Gamestation, they sold out of the 360 version within 3 hours of it going on sale on launch day and have been unable to get any more in.

Still, it'd explain the jump in %age sales of the PS3 version.

As long its not Zumba, any change is welcome (or rather what I am allluding to is, as long as its a gamers game occupying the top 5 - thats fine! Although I'm surprised Deus Ex did not stay up for long)
