UK top 40: Dead Island still top

Deep Silver's pockets deep with gold.

Popular zombie-basher Dead Island is still top of the UK games chart.

Dead Island sold more copies in two weeks than any other game published by Deep Silver has managed in a lifetime.

Dead Island is also now outselling PlayStation 3 exclusive Resistance 3 on the PS3 platform alone.

Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, Resistance 3, Driver: San Francisco and Deus Ex: Human Revolution complete the top five.

From there, in order, are Zumba Fitness, Lego Pirates of the Caribbean, Rugby World Cup 2011, Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and Cars 2.

The only top 40 newcomer this week is the God of War Collection Volume 2 in 35th.

There's notable movement for the price-dropped Red Faction: Armageddon, which rockets from nowhere to 11th.

Sega's spooky Kinect game Rise of Nightmares had a much better second week, moving up from 37th to 18th.

The full top 40 follows beneath the video.
