FIFA World Cup takes number one for third week

Alan Wake lands second in UK chart; Lost Planet 2 reaches number 3

The week's UK all-formats chart has seen three prominent new releases hit the top ten.

Xbox 360 title Alan Wake made its entry at number two, while Capcom's Lost Planet 2 reached number three and Skate 3 reached number five.

None of the new releases matched the performance of EA's FIFA World Cup however, which hung onto the top spot for a third week.

For both Lost Planet 2 and Skate 3, Xbox 360 took the lion's share of sales over PS3 with 66 per cent and 68 per cent respectively.

Ubisoft's Just Dance was pushed two places downwards to number four and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sunk four places to seven.

Final Fantasy XIII re-entered the top ten going from number 14 to 8, while Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction dropped out of the top ten to number 14.

The full Chart-Track top ten for the week ending May 15 was as follows:

  • 01 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa
  • 02 Alan Wake
  • 03 Lost Planet 2
  • 04 Just Dance
