Dead Island: Riptide retains UK chart top slot
Dead Island: Riptide holds onto the top position in the UK video games retail sales chart.
Proof, if any were ever needed, that one should never underestimate the appeal of zombie whack-a-mole, Dead Island: Riptide has retained its place as the top selling game in UK retail for the second week in a row.
Mind you, it's not Deep Silver's zombie adventure had to fend off much in the way of stiff competition. The only new entry in the charts this week comes in the form of the survival horror RPG for the PS Vita, Soul Sacrifice, which didn't even manage to crack the top ten - debuting instead in 26th place.
Elsewhere in the chart, the DC Super Hero arcade fighter is a non-mover in second place, while Tomb Raider clambers up two places to third position. FIFA 13 climbs up to fourth position as the football season winds down, while Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen drops two places to fifth position.
The rest of the top ten video games sales chart shapes up as follows:
