UK Top 40: Duke Nukem crowned first

The King topples L.A. Noire.

Potty-mouthed shooter Duke Nukem Forever has landed first place in the UK charts.

It knocked fellow Take-Two title L.A. Noire down to second, after a three week reign on top.

InFamous 2, another big release last week, entered in fourth - despite the game being PS3 only.

New shooty Martian adventure Red Faction also took off, managing a respectable eighth place.

With three new entries, regular chart faces such as Lego Pirates shuffled down to fifth, while DiRT 3 dug in to sixth and Black Ops slipped to ninth. Portal 2 made tenth.

The only entry to climb the top ten was Zumba Fitness, still selling like gangbusters and now back up to third. Blame Wii gamers - 84 per cent of sales are on Nintendo's machine, with 14 per cent on Xbox 360 and two per cent on PS3.
