Metal Gear Solid 4 debuts at #1 on UK charts

MGS4 debuts atop the sales charts and becomes the second fastest-selling PS3 game in the UK behind GTA IV

Konami's Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has debuted at number one on the UK charts according to data released by Chart-Track.

MGS4 supplants multi-platform title Lego Indiana Jones - last week's number one title - despite being released only on PlayStation 3. It has become the second fastest-selling PS3 game in the UK behind GTA IV and ahead of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue.

MGS4 has also beat MGS3 by 24,000 units but fell 14,000 units short of beating launch week sales of MGS2.

Wii Fit, which dropped off the charts shortly after launch due to supply constraints, has returned to take the tenth position. Sid Meier's Civilization: Revolution, a new release for Xbox 360 and PS3, debuts at number nine.

The week's other new release - Don King Presents: Prizefighter - debuted at number twenty-five on the chart.

The Top Ten best-selling titles in the UK for the week ending June 14 were:

  • 1 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
  • 2 Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
  • 3 Grand Theft Auto IV
  • 4 Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
