Kratos conquers the UK charts

God of War III has debuted at the top of the UK sales charts, the second PS3 exclusive next to Heavy Rain to manage the feat this year. The now weeks old Battlefield: Bad Company 2 displayed some staying power and is a close second with just 2000 less copies sold while last week’s number one, Final Fantasy XIII, slips to third.

Other new releases in the top 20 include the post-apocalyptic Metro 2033 (nr.5), Dragon Age: OriginsAwakening expansion (nr.11) and Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight (nr.12).
