Epic curb-stomps Codemasters

There’s no prize for guessing what game is at the top of the UK chart this week. You may not have guessed though that Gears of War 3 ranks as the biggest launch of this year so far, almost beating the launch week figures for Gears 1 and 2 combined.

Codemasters’ F1 2011 makes a pit-stop at #2, followed by Dead Island, Zumba Fitness and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. 505 Games is, in fact, the only publisher to have two games in the top 10 this week, with the other being Rugby World Cup 2011 at #10.

505 Games’ MMA Supremacy isn’t off to a good start, however – it’s at #24 in the PlayStation 3 chart and #29 in the Xbox 360 chart.

As for other recent releases, Rise of Nightmares drops from #18 to #25, Starfox 64 3D goes from #13 to #35 while God of War Collection Volume II drops from #35 to #38.
