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.
