UK Charts: Future Soldier wins the battle; Dragon’s Dogma, Dirt Showdown debut

Looks like all that development time may have been worth it; Ubisoft’s long-awaited next installation in the Ghost Recon franchise, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, has debuted at the top of the UK’s all-formats charts, sneaking past and pushing down last week’s #1 Max Payne 3. Not only that, it had the best week one launch of the series yet.

The week also saw a few other newcomers; Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma debuts at #3 and Codemasters’ Dirt Showdown at #4. FIFA 12 stays put at #5.

The biggest fallers of the week are Diablo III (from #2 to #9) and FIFA Street (from #3 to #10).

Mario Tennis Open just misses the top ten. It’s at #11.

Top 10 follows:

1. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
2. Max Payne 3
3. Dragon’s Dogma
4. Dirt Showdown
5. FIFA 12
6. Sniper Elite V2
7. Modern Warfare 3
8. Prototype 2
9. Diablo III
10. FIFA Street
