UK Top 40: Prototype 2 tops chart

Despite lower sales than predecessor.

Open world mutant adventure Prototype 2 managed to wrap its tendrils around the UK all-formats chart this week, debuting in first place.

But it failed to match launch week sales of the first Prototype, despite it launching on a Tuesday and therefore having a longer time on sale.

Prototype 2 did however manage to sell more than other recent number ones Kinect Star Wars and Witcher 2 in their respective launch weeks.

Otherwise, it was a quiet week for new releases. Crash Time 4, the only other fresh launch, failed to chart altogether.

Witcher 2, last week's number one, fell to sixth. The rest of the top 10 remained largely unchanged: FIFA Street remained second, with FIFA 12, Mass Effect 3 and Kinect Star Wars filling out the rest of the top five.

The full top 40 lies below.
