Monday is up, and that can only mean one thing - the official UK game sales charts are in!
Good news for Sega this week, as Aliens: Colonial Marines has blasted its way to the top spot despite more than a few qualms about the final product's quality. It snipes the bestseller position out of the hands of EA's Dead Space 3, which slips to 2nd place.
Elsewhere, things are much as they were, although Halo 4 made up a bit of ground, and climbs back into the basement of the top 10, up from last week's 13, while Assassin's Creed III runs, jumps, and leaps up to 6 from last week's 12.
