Take-Two and Rockstar's open world western Red Dead Redemption led video game sales in the UK during its second week on sale, beating out the debut showing of THQ and Yuke's' UFC Undisputed 2010, Chart-Track said Monday.

According to the tracking firm's data for the week that ended May 29, the game's Xbox 360 SKU was also the top-selling game on the individual format chart, followed by its PlayStation 3 version.

And despite also releasing last week, Disney and Black Rock Studios' racing game Split/Second: Velocity was able to handily beat out Activision and Bizarre Creations' Blur, whose debut failed to make the top ten. Another new entry, Sega and Obsidian's spy RPG Alpha Protocol, suffered a similar fate. The games came in at numbers 14 and 13 respectively.

Below are the top 10 rankings for the all-platforms chart, which combines sales of all versions of a given game.
