Mass Effect 2 debuts at the top of UK charts

BioWare’s newcomer Mass Effect 2 has overtaken the crown from Just Dance in last week’s UK sales charts, despite the Ubisoft title enjoying a 16 percent increase in sales. The sci-fi epic was released on Friday, meaning it managed to topple the dance-o-rama title with just two days worth of sales. According to GFK Chart-Track, the Xbox 360 version of the role-playing shooter has had double the sales of its predecessor, while the PC version has tripled the sales of its counterpart.

Modern Warfare 2 saw a 3 percent drop in sales and dropped to third place while the second newcomer for the week, MAG (read our review here), debuts at number four. Top 20 follows.
