The tracking firm said the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game is Take-Two's second time topping the all-platforms sales charts, following the chart-topping BioShock 2 earlier this year.

Chart-Track said sales of the title were enough for it to rank number 11 overall in terms of best ever weekly sales on the all-platforms chart.

Other high-profile releases making the top 10 chart this week were Disney and Black Rock Studios' racing game Split/Second: Velocity, Ubisoft's movie tie-in Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and Sony's PS3 game ModNation Racers.
