UK charts: Splinter Cell Conviction is top

Episodes from Liberty City up there too.

Ubisoft's new Splinter Cell: Conviction game has topped the UK all-formats chart. The game is only available on Xbox 360 for the moment, with the PC release due at the end of April.

Conviction's arrival pushed last week's chart-topper Just Dance into second ahead of standalone Grand Theft Auto IV add-on pack Episodes from Liberty City, which was finally released on PC and PS3 last Friday. The PS3 version accounted for 90 per cent of sales. (The Episodes content is also available via digital distribution, which isn't covered by Chart-Track's figures.)

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was fourth, Wii Fit Plus fifth and Just Cause 2 sixth. Wii Sports Resort, Pokemon SoulSilver, Modern Warfare 2 and FIFA 10 rounded out the top 10.
