Rockstar Games Red Dead Redemption once again led video games sales in the UK, and Nintendos Super Mario Galaxy 2 and EA Sports 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa remained in the top three of the all platforms list, announced Chart-Track.

The tracking firms data, which covers the week ending June 19, remained largely unchanged from last week, with no new titles making their debut in the top ten. Ubisofts Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and Activisions Blur, however, reentered the all platforms list at seventh and ninth, respectively.

Sales for leading titles such as Red Dead Redemption and Super Mario Galaxy 2 declined from last week, and 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa failed to surpass either title, despite a sales increase of 16 percent. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands was the only other title that experienced increased sales this week.

Two new titles, International Cricket 2010 and Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker, made their debuts in the UK sales charts, though neither made it into the top ten.

Below is Chart-Track's all-platforms list, which ranks games by unit sales of all versions of a given title.
