UK chart: Medal of Honor wins gold

Just Dance 2 is just third.

EA's war game Medal of Honor has surged into the UK all-formats chart at number one.

It's the biggest ever UK launch week for a Medal of Honor title. Of total sales, 52 per cent were made on Xbox 360, 43 per cent on PS3 and 5 per cent on PC. Remember that digital sales aren't counted.

Medal of Honor is the fourth biggest Xbox 360 game-launch of 2010, and the fifth biggest on PS3.

Ubisoft's sequel to party sensation Just Dance managed third.

That meant last week's leader FIFA 11 was pushed to second.

Wii Party was fourth, PES 2011 fifth, F1 2010 sixth and Dead Rising 2 seventh.

Halo: Reach hung on in eighth ahead of another newcomer Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 in ninth.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow rounded the chart out in 10th.
