Rockstar's open-world Western Red Dead Redemption fell from the top sales spot in the UK after five weeks, making room for the latest leader, Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 from Traveller's Tales and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

Tracking firm Chart-Track said Monday that during the week ended June 26, Lego Harry Potter became the first UK all-platforms number one for publisher WBIE. The all-platforms list lumps together unit sales of all versions of a given title.

New entries on the all-platforms list this week include A2M and 505 Games' Naughty Bear, a sandbox-style game featuring a maniacal stuffed bear, and the role-playing title Demon's Souls: Black Phantom Edition, developed by From Software and published by Namco Bandai in the UK.

High Moon Studios and Activision's multi-platform licensed game Transformers: War for Cybertron also debuted in the top 10 in the country. There were eight different publishers in this week's diverse top 10.
