UK Charts: Race cars are better than Halo

After only one week atop the UK Chart, Halo: Reach has been shunted into second place by F1 2010, proving that Britain’s love for sport of any description displaces what Microsoft has erroneously called the “biggest” shooter of the year. 

Dead Rising 2 has also debuted in a respectable third place, with Europeans getting the game before those of us in North America. Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock has made an uncharacteristic debut in sixth place, although what it lacks in top-five placement it’ll surely make up in longevity. 

We’ve also got Final Fantasy XIV debuting in tenth position, giving us a nice variety of new placements this week. Makes a change from the same old tripe. Hit the jump for the full list, anyway.
