UK charts: F1 2010 beats Reach, Dead Rising 2, other newcomers

Quite a few newcomers on the UK’s all-formats sales chart this week.

Last week’s big winner Halo: Reach saw a massive 80% drop in sales and had to settle for the #2 spot, with the top spot taken by F1 2010. The Codemasters could-be-yearly racer outsold both Reach and Capcom’s newcomer Dead Rising 2 (#3) combined.

This is the first time in nine years an F1 racer has managed to grab the top spot.

Civilization V, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock and the collector’s edition of Final Fantasy XIV (standard will be released this week), all of which debuted last week, take spots #4, #6, and #10, respectively.
