No surprises here. Mass Effect 3 has rocketed straight to the top of the UK charts after three days of trading, with EA confirming that it outsold both Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2's launch weeks combined. Though figures aren't forthcoming from GFK, we're reliably informed that it's this year's biggest release thus far (though, of course, this should be fairly obvious). We've ploughed an entire weekend into getting it finished, and Matt's full review is in the pipeline. Hackett out.
EA continue their chart success with SSX, which has secured second place after topping the hit list last week. Reviews and player feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and it represents a true return to greatness for the venerable series. Crossover brawler Street Fighter X Tekken has also entered the chart at 3rd place.
Elsewhere, the usual suspects are jostling for position - though Battlefield 3 has dropped from the Top Ten for the first time. Unit 13, the new Vita shooter from Zipper Interactive, has also just missed the top ten, weighing in at number 15. We've got a full review for your delectation.
As always, we've got the top ten after the break along with links to our reviews where applicable.
