March 28, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Crytek and EA's Crysis 2 took the top spot in the UK software sales charts for the week ended March 26, after receiving critical acclaim.

THQ's Homefront relinquished its number one place from the previous week, dropping down to number three with a sales decline of 47 percent, UK tracking firm Chart-Track confirmed Monday.

Last week saw the release of the Nintendo 3DS in the UK, with four 3DS releases in the top ten. Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition was the top-selling 3DS launch game, debuting at number four.

Pokemon White and Black held steady in the top ten, each dropping two places from last week to numbers five and seven respectively.

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.
