UK Top 40: Uncharted: Golden Abyss claims top spot for Vita

While Syndicate lands seventh.

PlayStation Vita launch title Uncharted: Golden Abyss has claimed top spot in the new UK all-format charts.

Another Vita exclusive, FIFA Football, scored second. It's worth noting that sales company Chart-Track does not count digital sales, meaning the games achieved their chart places based on boxed copies alone.

The two games accounted for 50 per cent of the total Vita software sold last week. There were 23 launch titles in total.

PlayStation Vita hardware sales data showed that 79 per cent of buyers chose the Vita's Wi-Fi version. Chart-Track does not publicly disclose sales figures.

EA shooter reboot Syndicate entered the chart in seventh, meanwhile, behind UFC3, FIFA 12, Rayman Origins and Mario & Sonic Olympics 2012.

Wii exclusive role-player The Last Story debuted in 15th place. The latest title from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi was not stocked at GAME or Gamestation in the UK.

But new Sega tactical shooter Binary Domain fared less well, landing 35th.

Other Vita games managing a place in the top 40 included WipEout 2048 (11th place), Ridge Racer (28th) and Everybody's Golf (32nd). And multi-platform game Rayman Origins shot up from 36th to 5th after the release of its Vita version.
