UK chart: Crysis 3 beats Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

But neither outsold Aliens: Colonial Marines' opening total.

Crysis 3 has shot to the top of the UK all-format charts, beating fellow newcomer Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

Just 5500 copies separated the top two - and it's worth remembering that Crysis 3 was also available on PC.

But neither sold as many as Aliens: Colonial Marines did last week, when it topped the chart.

Aliens fell to fifth position this week, behind FIFA 13 and Black Ops 2, third and fourth respectively.

Meanwhile, PlayStation Vita-exclusive Persona 4 Golden made it to 32nd place.

Dead Space 3 was sixth, Far Cry 3 seventh and Need for Speed: Most Wanted eighth. Assassin's Creed 3 and Hitman Absolution rounded out the top ten.
