Superb horror shooter Dead Space 2 has landed squarely atop the UK all-formats top 40 chart.

Sales for the sequel are 70 per cent higher than for Dead Space 1.

Despite an alluring PS3 bundle - with Dead Space: Extraction thrown in for free - it was the Xbox 360 version with the lion's share of sales: 56 per cent. The PS3 commanded only 40 per cent (the PC filled the remaining 4 per cent).

LittleBigPlanet 2 proved popular to hold on at two, followed by football stalwart FIFA 11 at three, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood in four and Call of Duty: Black Ops at five.

Just Dance 2, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Wii Fit Plus, Art Academy and Just Dance rounded out the top 10.
