UK charts: Grid 2 takes top spot

Grid 2 was the top selling game at UK retail in the last week and Codemasters’ first number one since 2010, Ukie has confirmed.

The new entry tops the charts despite selling 29 per cent fewer units that its predecessor in its launch week, which entered the charts at number two five years ago.

Last week’s number one, Resident Evil Revelations, slides to number five with a week-on-week sales decline of 45 per cent.

There’s only one other new entry this week – Insomniac’s Fuse, published by EA, limps into the top 40 at 37.
