UFC Undisputed 3 hits number one

While Kingdoms of Amalur, last week's chart topper, falls out of the top ten

There’s another new number one in this week’s all-format game chart, the third different number one in three weeks.

UFC Undisputed 3 has hit the top of the chart, doing what Undisputed 2 failed to manage (the previous title only reached number two, despite actually shifting a few more copies).

Neither, though, performed as well as the original, which was a chart topper and in fact outsold the current game by three to one.

It’s the first number one for publisher THQ since Homefront which was released almost a year ago now.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, last week’s number one, slid out of the top ten completely, dropping to number twelve (it’s very rare for a top selling title to fall quite so badly in its second week).

Price promotions saw FIFA 12 and Modern Warfare 3 moving back up the chart to take the number two and three spots respectively.

Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games zipped up to number four, boosted by sales of the new 3DS version, and Battlefield 3 edged up to number five.

That was followed by Fantasy XIII-2, which was number one two weeks ago, dropping four places to number six this week.

Skylanders broke into the top ten, up from number fourteen to number seven, and the Darkness 2 slid to number eight.

Skyrim is clinging onto the top ten at number nine, followed by Just Dance 3 which pushed Assassin’s Creed: Revelations out of the ten best-sellers list.
