Rebellion Developments and 505 Games' tactical shooter Sniper Elite V2
launched at the top of the UK sales charts last week, while Warner Bros. Interactive's Mortal Kombat
for PS Vita only just managed to scrape into the top 40.
For the week ended May 5, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, Rebellion's remake of its original 2005 release took the top spot, knocking last week's number one Prototype 2
down a notch to number two.
The only other new release last week was Mortal Kombat
for the PS Vita, which only managed to reach number 33 in the charts in its opening week.
Otherwise the charts were business as usual, with EA taking up a good portion of the top 10 via FIFA 12, FIFA Street, Mass Effect 3, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13
and Battlefield 3
Microsoft's Kinect Star Wars
also held firm in the top 10 despite being a Kinect-specific title, while Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
re-entered the top 10 at the bottom.
