UK charts: AVP is the new leader

Miles Edgeworth and Van Halen struggle.

SEGA has taken the UK All-Formats Chart top spot this week with Rebellion's reboot of Aliens vs. Predator.

The game has become the fastest-seller of the year. Xbox 360 accounted for 58 per cent of sales, with 32 per cent falling to PS3 and nine per cent on PC, although it's worth noting that digitally distributed copies are not counted.

Last week's leader, BioShock 2, fell to third.

Other newcomers fared much worse. Guitar Hero: Van Halen managed only 17th on the Xbox 360 chart and 27th on PS3. Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce managed 30th on the Xbox 360 chart but was nowhere to be seen on PS3.

Disappointingly, Ace Attorney: Miles Edgeworth only reached seventh on the DS chart. And PSP debutant SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo managed eighth on the PSP list.

The rest of the All-Formats top 10 was relatively unchanged: Just Dance (2), BioShock 2 (3), New Super Mario Bros Wii. (4), FIFA 10 (5), Modern Warfare 2 (6), Wii Sports Resort (7), Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games (8), Wii Fit Plus (9) and Army of Two: The 40th Day (10).

SEGA's official but dreadful recreation of the Winter Olympic Games, Vancouver 2010, piggybacked the real-life sporting event's popularity and raced up to 11.
