THQ's UFC Undisputed 3 took to the top of the UK sales charts last week in its opening weekend, while last week's number one Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning fell out of the top 10. For the week ended February 18, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning spent just one week in the top 10 before dropping down to number 12, with a 63 percent drop in sales. The previous two titles in the UFC Undisputed franchise sold better in their launch weeks than this latest in the franchise, with the first game outselling UFC Undisputed 3 by more than 3 to 1. Boosted by the release of the Nintendo 3DS version, Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games continued to rocket up the charts, settling for fourth position, its highest chart position to date. Activision's Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure re-entered the top 10, sitting at number 7, while Just Dance 3 also bobbed back in, scraping in at number 10.
