The Witcher 2 seizes UK number one

Xbox 360 version of CD Projekt's RPG is highest and only new entry

The Xbox 360 version of CD Projekt's celebrated RPG The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings entered the UK charts at number one last week.

The PC version, which was released in May 2011, only charted at number five, making this the highest entry in the UK chart for the franchise.

There were no other new releases in the week ending April 21, and apart from Mass Effect 3 dropping three places to number five there was very little movement in the chart in general.
