LA Noire tops DiRT 3 in UK all format gaming charts

UK Gaming Charts see Wii releases rise again

LA Noire has retained its spot atop the UK all format gaming charts having faught off stiff competition to push new entry DiRT 3 to second place on the podium.

Despite a 43 per cent drop in sales from its opening week, Rockstar’s crime solving thriller release has once again topped the UK gaming charts with Codemasters’ latest edition to the DiRT racing franchise being followed by LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean in third place.

Although having sold more opening week copies that its predecessor, DiRT 3, which performed strongest on the Xbox 360 with the Microsoft console accounting for 67 per cent of all sales, couldn’t top the continued strong performance of LA Noire, a game tipped to change the future face of all gaming releases.

Whilst Zumba Fitness and Brink rounded out the top five Wii releases performed strongly in the wake of the console’s latest price drop with Wii Sports Resort and Mario Kart lining up in sixth and tenth in the all-format charts respectively. FIFA 11, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Crysis 2 completed the top 10 landing in spots seven to nine.
