UK charts: LittleBigPlanet 2, Mass Effect 2 on PS3 debut

Media Molecule’s PlayStation 3-exclusive LittleBigPlanet 2 has quickly made its mark on the UK’s weekly sales charts. The record breaker arrived at #1 on its first week, passing Call of Duty: Black Ops, Just Dance 2, and FIFA 11, all of which have been tight contenders for the top three for several weeks now.

Though the original LittleBigPlanet never went higher than #4, the sequel’s week one sales are all but identical with its 2008 predecessor, data collector GFK Chart-Track points out, with only 95 copies separating the two.

Mass Effect 2‘s debut on PS3 gave the game a 462% boost in week-over-week sales, propelling it to #7. DC Universe Online, which debuted at #10 a week ago, slips to #22.
