UK Top 40: The Witcher 2 conjures first place

FIFA Street booted off top spot.

Polish role-player The Witcher 2 has stormed the UK all-format charts, taking first place.

Reigning chart champion FIFA Street, last week's number one, was booted down to second.

The Witcher 2's chart victory was well deserved: Simon Parkin awarded the game 9/10 in Eurogamer's Witcher 2 review. 98 per cent of sales counted last week were for the new Xbox 360 version, although Chart-Track does not count PC digital download sales.

The UK top 40 otherwise remains unchanged. Last week's other three new releases failed to find chart placings: Bleach: Soul Resurrection on PlayStation 3, Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention on Vita and Battleship on every format ever.

FIFA 12, Kinect Star Wars and Mass Effect 3 made up the rest of the top five, respectively. Chart stalwarts Tiger Woods 12, Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Mario & Sonic Olympics and Modern Warfare held firm in the remainder of the top 10.

The full chart lies below.
