Kaos Studios and THQ's Homefront debuted at the top of the UK software sales charts -- despite average reviews for the first-person shooter -- for the week ended March 19. Last week's big release Dragon Age II saw a 68 percent decline in sales, dropping to number two, UK tracking firm Chart-Track said Monday. After a sales decline of 50 percent last week, Pokemon White now drops to number three, while Pokemon Black slips to number five. Creative Assembly and Sega's Shogun 2: Total War is a new entry this week, entering at number four between the top Pokemon titles. Nearly 80 percent of retail box sales for Shogun 2 were made in the first 24 hours from last Tuesday, reflecting high demand.
