Techland and Deep Silver's Dead Island took the number one slot in the UK software sales charts, in a week bursting with new releases. For the week ended September 10, data from tracking firm Chart-Track shows that Dead Island knocked Deus Ex: Human Revolution from the top spot, ending the stealth game's two-week run. Deus Ex fell to number five, with a 60 percent decline in sales compared to last week. The top five was littered with new releases, as Relic and THQ's Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine launched at number two, and PlayStation 3 exclusive Resistance 3 took number four. Nintendo saw its 3D remake of Star Fox 64 enter the charts at number nine, while Polyphony's Gran Turismo 5 was re-released via the PS3 Platinum series, and managed to jump into the tailend of the chart at number ten. Elsewhere, Zumba Fitness felt to its lowest rank since launch, with a spot at number six, and Driver: San Francisco continued to see strong sales, holding on to a position at number three. Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.
