UK charts: God of War III at No. 1

Metro 2033, DAO Awakening, C&C4 feature. 

Sony's huge PS3 exclusive God of War III has rampaged to the top of the UK All-Formats chart.

The third instalment in the series outsold the second instalment by 2.65 to 1. God of War III's launch was three times smaller than Final Fantasy XIII's last week, though.

Square Enix's JRPG dropped 80 per cent of sales this week and fell to third, behind EA's Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Just Dance finished fourth, ahead of this week's other new entry Metro 2033 in fifth.

Wii Fit Plus, Heavy Rain, Wii Sports Resort, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing and Modern Warfare 2 rounded out the top 10.

Dragon Age: Origins expansion Awakening just missed out in 11th, as did Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight in 12th. The only other new entry is in the top 40 is Capcom's MotoGP 09/10 in 21st.

Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon sold only a few copies and finished 27th on the Wii chart. Scene-It? Twilight performed a little better and finished 25th on the same list. PC game King's Bounty: Armored Princess didn't place, but the majority of that game's sales will be done online.

It's My Circus didn't appear anywhere, nor did MUD TV.

Yakuza 3, which got off to a slow start last week at 24th, fell off the All-Formats top 40 and settled in 13th on the PlayStation 3 list.
