UK chart: Mass Effect 2 takes lead

MAG features, Tatsunoko bombs.

BioWare's galactic PC and Xbox 360 RPG Mass Effect 2 has entered the UK all-formats chart at number one.

The EA-published sequel sold twice as many copies as Mass Effect 1, which was published by Microsoft. And BioWare's popularity meant a boost for Dragon Age: Origins this week, which re-entered the chart at 31.

Sony's big PS3 exclusive MAG debuted in fourth, and Capcom's fighting game Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars missed the top 40 and finished sixth on the Wii chart.

Previous All-Formats leader Just Dance was pushed into second ahead of Modern Warfare 2 in third, Wii Sports Resort in fifth and Wii Fit Plus in sixth. FIFA 10, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Army of Two: The 40th Day and Avatar rounded out the top 10.

Further down, Darksiders and Bayonetta continued to fall - the former to 18th and the latter to 25th - and Capcom's Dark Void ran out of fuel and toppled off the Top 40 after two weeks on sale. Last summer's Batman: Arkham Asylum also disappeared.
