EA's FIFA Street held on to the top spot for a second week in the UK sales charts, despite a 44 percent drop in sales week-over-week.

However, Capcom halted EA's dominance of the top four, as Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City entered at number two in its opening weekend. EA still held the rest of the top five, with Mass Effect 3, FIFA 12 and SSX holding steady at numbers three to five respectively.

For the week ended March 24, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, the only other new entry into the top 10 last week was Nintendo's long-awaited Kid Icarus: Uprising for 3DS, which entered the charts at number seven.

Elsewhere, Sega's F1 2011 re-entered the charts at number nine, while usual suspects Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 climbed ever so slightly.

Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.
