UK chart: Halo 4 top but sales lower than Halo 3, Reach

LittleBigPlanet Karting skids in 24th.

Xbox 360-exclusive Halo 4 is the new UK all-format chart number one, albeit with lower launch week sales than Halo 3 and Halo: Reach.

It did beat the launch week figures of last week's sales winner Assassin's Creed 3 - making it the UK's 18th biggest game launch ever.

It's worth remembering that Halo 4 launched last Tuesday, and thus benefited from an extra three days on sale.

Most other publishers left the Halo launch week well clear, but Sony tried its luck with PlayStation 3-exclusive LittleBigPlanet Karting. It entered the chart in 24th place.

Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth and Mass Effect Trilogy also arrived in shops last week but failed to make an impression in the chart's top 40.

Assassin's Creed 3, last week's number one, slipped slightly into second. FIFA 13 was third, Need for Speed: Most Wanted was fourth while Football Manager 2013 was fifth.
