Need For Speed: Shift tops UK chart

Shift claims UK all formats chart

EA's latest addition to its Need For Speed franchise, NFS: Shift, debuted atop the UK all formats chart for the week ended September 19.

Sony's TV marketing for the title no doubt helped the PS3 version come out on top, accounting for 52 per cent of total sales, according to GfK Chart-Track. The Xbox 360 version generated 44 per cent of the game's sales, and the PC and PSP editions the remainder.
