UK charts: Red Dead Redemption is top

Split/Second, Prince of Persia appear.

Rockstar's celebrated Western, Red Dead: Redemption, has galloped to the top of the UK all-formats chart.

A whopping 65 per cent of the pie went to Xbox 360, leaving the remaining 35 per cent on PS3. Were stock delays to blame?

Last week's new arrivals Split/Second: Velocity and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands also placed highly: Black Rock's racer took fifth and Ubisoft's film accompaniment took ninth.

Sony's ModNation Racers zipped into 10th.

Filling in the top-10 gaps were previous leader 2010 FIFA World Cup in second, Just Dance in third and Wii Fit Plus in fourth.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Lost Planet 2 and Alan Wake were sixth, seventh and eighth.
