UK charts: Ubisoft first with Conviction

Monster Hunter Tri makes decent start.

Wii game Monster Hunter Tri has debuted fifth in the UK all-formats chart.

Capcom's brilliant co-op adventure was by far the highest placed of the newcomers. Of the others, Dead to Rights: Retribution was muzzled at 22nd and Nier was far away and missed the top 40. The latter was 18th on the PS3 chart and 17th on Xbox 360.

Splinter Cell: Conviction spent a second week at the top, and may make that a third with the PC release of the game this Friday.

Ubisoft's other chart-topper, Just Dance, was second and Wii Fit Plus was fourth. Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Wii Sports Resort, Modern Warfare 2, Just Cause 2 and Pokemon SoulSilver rounded the chart out to 10.
