The top Kinect title "by far" is Rare's Kinect Sports, with 28 percent of all Kinect units sold over the last ten weeks (not including Kinect Adventures which is bundled with Kinect), UKIE said.

UK devs also feature in the top five on both Move and Wii Motion Plus, with the UK accounting for 30 percent of all Move software unit sales since launch.

UKIE director general Michael Rawlinson said: "The array of strong products that our home-grown, UK talent is producing is something we can all be proud of.

"This just shows how our UK developer base remains one of the best in the world, and can continue to step up to the plate as the market develops and platforms evolve."
