Duke Nukem sales: 56% Xbox, 30% PS3

Red Faction sales: 70% Xbox, 26% PS3.

Duke Nukem Forever has topped the UK all-formats chart and sold a meaty majority on Xbox 360.

Xbox 360 dominated a fat 56 per cent of the sales pie; PS3 claimed only 30 per cent.

PC took 14 per cent, but remember that digitally distributed copies (i.e. those bought on Steam, Get Games and elsewhere), aren't counted.

Duke Nukem Forever has been in development turmoil for over decade. It took Borderlands maker Gearbox Software to buy the IP to finish the fight.

Unfortunately, Duke Nukem Forever is rubbish - Eurogamer awarded it 3/10. " Nostalgia only gets you so far," wrote Eurogamer reviewer Dan Whitehead, "and in Duke's case, it's not far enough."

A much better new game released on Friday was Red Faction: Armageddon, which scored 7/10 on Eurogamer.

Armageddon sales were heavily skewed towards Xbox 360, which gobbled a gutsy 70 per cent of the pie. PS3 was left with 26 per cent and PC with just 4 per cent.
