UK Chart: Mafia II remains top

Mafia IIMafia II holds on to number one spot of the charts for the third consecutive week in a vastly shaken up GFK Chart-Track top ten. Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. 2 sees massive boost in sales, jumping eight places from eighth to second position.

Square Enix’s Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days drops one position down to third this week, while Disney’s Toy Story 3 is still selling strongly and is a non-mover in fourth place.

The biggest jumper this week is Nintendo’s Tetris Party Deluxe which jumps almost 20 places from 23rd to fifth.

However, that boost doesn’t make Tetris this week’s biggest mover with Metroid: Other M disappointingly dropping twenty eight places from twelfth to fortieth in just its second week.

Things are tight between this weeks new entries into the chart, with Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep and R.U.S.E. debuting at sixth, seventh and eighth respectively.

Meanwhile, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands stays in ninth place while Red Dead Redemption drops from fifth to tenth, the Western’s lowest position since entering the charts in May.

Just Dance, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4, Sniper: Ghost Warrior and Wii Sports resort all drop out of the Top Ten this week, will any of them make a return?

The full top ten of the UK Software Chart for the week ending September 11th is as follows:

1.       Mafia II (2K Games)
2.       Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X 2 (Ubisoft)
3.       Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days (Square Enix)
4.       Toy Story 3 (Disney)
5.       Tetris Party Deluxe (Nintendo)
6.       Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (Activision Blizzard)
7.       Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep (Square Enix)
8.       R.U.S.E (Ubisoft)
9.       Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (Ubisoft)
10.      Red Dead Redemption (Rockstar)

So Train2Game students, has anyone played this weeks new releases in the form of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, or R.U.S.E? If so, what do you think? With Halo: Reach being released this week, do you think time is up for Mafia II?

Is there anyone who doesn’t think Halo: Reach will be a must buy?
