Sony and Guerrilla Games' Killzone 3 led the UK sales charts this week, followed closely by Epic and People Can Fly's Bulletstorm, reports tracking firm Chart-Track. For the week ended February 26, the PS3-exclusive Killzone 3 saw strong first week sales, though Killzone 2 still holds the record for the strongest opening week yet for this gritty and graphically ambitious franchise. Despite slightly slower first week sales than the previous title, Killzone 3 topped the multiplatform Bulletstorm, which released on Xbox 360 and PC in addition to the PS3. After its debut at number two last week, Capcom's Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds fell to number seven on the all-platforms chart. Titles returning to the top 10 this week include EA and Criterion's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Nintendo's Wii Party, while Atari's Test Drive Unlimited 2 and Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet 2 slipped off the charts. 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.
