Dead Island tops UK Gaming Chart for second straight week

Dead Island retains gaming chart top spot following quiet week

Dead Island tops the UK All Format Gaming Chart for second week as Driver: San Francisco falls and Rugby World Cup 2011 puts in another strong performance

Deep Silver’s zombie thriller Dead Island has recorded a second week atop the UK All Format Gaming Charts with just a single new entry penetrating the top 40 in the past seven days.

With a fleet of high profile releases to hit stores in the coming weeks including F1 2011 and FIFA 12 as well as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3, the UK game chart saw a final quiet week before the battle for the coveted Christmas number one slot escalates.

Recording its second consecutive week in pole position Dead Island once again held off competition from Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine in second with Resistance 3 rising one spot to replace Driver: San Francisco on the final step of the podium.

Falling behind the latest Driver title; former chart toppers Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Zumba Fitness filled fifth and sixth places respectively with LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean in seventh.

Continuing to prove popular alongside the ongoing tournament Rugby World Cup 2011 ended the week in eighth spot with LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and Cars 2 completing the top ten. Sony’s God of War Collection II was the only top 40 new entry hitting the charts in 35th position.
