Train2Game news: UK Charts – PS Vita Uncharted Golden Abyss takes No.1

Train2Game students see PlayStation Vita games Uncharted: Golden Abyss and FIFA Football storm the charts following the launch of Sony’s handheld console in the UK.

Sony’s own Uncharted: Golden Abyss is therefore the first PlayStation Vita title to take No.1 in the UKIE Games Charts, and it’s followed in No.2 by another Vita launch title, FIFA Football. The two games account for half of all PlayStation Vita game sales this week.

UFC Undisputed 3, which as reported by The Train2Game Blog took top spot last week,  has to settled for No.3, while FIFA 12 slips to No.4. Rayman: Origins jumps 31 places to re-enter the top ten at No.5, thanks to the release of the PlayStation Vita version.

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games drops two to No.6, with multiplatform title Syndicate the highest non-Vita new entry at No.7.  FPS rivals Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 slip to No.8 and No.9 respectively, while former No.1 Final Fantasy XIII-2 completes the top ten.

Three new entries make the top twenty, with Wipeout 2048 for PlayStation Vita at No.11, Nintendo Wii RPG The Last Story at No.15, and Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition taking No.17. SEGA’s new release Binary Domain only manages No.35 in its first week on sale.
