Dead Island tops UK Gaming Chart ahead of Warhammer

Dead Island beats Warhammer and Rugby World Cup 2011 to UK Gaming Chart success

Apocalyptic zombie slayer Dead Island as topped the UK All Format Gaming Charts in its opening week despite a series of indifferent reviews.

The Deep Silver developed game has leapt to the top of the UK Gaming Chart after its intense cinema-style Dead Island trailer caught gamers imaginations earlier this year and lands ahead of fellow new release Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.

Whilst Ubisoft’s Driver: San Francisco has dropped one spot to round out its second week in third, ahead of new release Resistance 3, last week’s chart topper Deus Ex: Human Revolution fell four places to claim fifth place in this week’s chart.

Former chart powerhouse Zumba Fitness ended the week in sixth ahead of Rugby World Cup 2011 which landed in seventh as the start of the hard hitting tournament kicked into life on Friday. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean and Star Fox 64 3D were eighth and ninth respectively with cut priced Gran Turismo 5 completing the week’s top ten.
