The PS3 version of the shooter shifted 180,372 copies to place first, while the Xbox 360 edition sold around 30,000 to come in at No.7.

Saints Row: The Third for PS3 was a new entry at No.5, while the Xbox 360 edition placed at No.14, Andriasang reports.

Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 entered at No.10 and Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary at No.15.

3DS was again the best-selling hardware, managing to outsell PSP and PS3 combined, although sales fell below the 100,000 mark for the first time in three weeks.

PS3 and PSP sales nearly doubled week-over-week, with each clearing 40,000 units thanks to the release of new colour models.
