Atari's Test Drive Unlimited 2 Leads UK Sales

Atari and Eden Games' Test Drive Unlimited 2 led the UK software charts this week, followed by EA's popular Dead Space 2 and FIFA 11, reports tracking firm Chart-Track.
Atari and Eden Games' Test Drive Unlimited 2 led the UK software charts this week, becoming the first Atari title to reach number one since Namco Bandai purchased the publisher's European distribution business in 2009, reports tracking firm Chart-Track. The online-focused Test Drive Unlimited 2 experienced the most successful launch yet for the Test Drive franchise, with launch week sales more than double those of the previous title. Slipping below Test Drive Unlimited 2 on the all-platforms sales charts were EA's Dead Space 2 and FIFA 11, while Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops held firm at number four. After their debut last week, Nintendo's Mario Vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem! and Mario Sports Mix climbed into the top 10 at numbers six and eight, respectively. Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition returned to the top 10 at number nine after some recent retailer promotions, and Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet 2 fell to the bottom of the charts at number 10. Titles slipping from the charts this week include Nintendo's Art Academy, EA's Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, and The Sims 3. 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.
