The UK all formats chart is aflame with rebellious citizenry in THQ's Homefront, followed by BioWare's tale of immigrant to champion in Dragon Age II.

Pokemon White was able to fend off Total War: Shogun 2 from entering third, as it came fourth instead. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood back in top 10.

Other newcomer Top Spin 4 managed 13th place in the chart. Fight Night Champion is 6th having enjoyed the previous week in 3rd. FIFA 11 held firm at 8th while the arrival of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood for PC has pushed it back into the top 10.

Below is the UK all formats chart for the week ending March 19th.

Won't be for long. It's the shiny new toy on the block, and shooters will always outsell anything else on the market. "Bulletstorm" isn't fairing well at all interestingly. I'd have thought it would have produce the same response that "Borderlands" did last year.

Well I have roughly 20 hours in Bulletstorm - Borderlands which I thought was OK but not great got almost 100 hours before I had finished it on the classes I found interesting. Bulletstorm lacks a decent MP part and gets a bit old after 15+ hours. It is fun to play for 15-25 minutes at a time though. Insane action and then break.

I logged onto XFire the other day to see that one friend had logged in 1400 hrs MP of "CoD:BO". I was stunned!

Wow, I started to play BFBC2 MP after the single player campaign and had 5 hours logged, and now I have I think close to a 100 hours there. BFBC2 takes a longer time to level up in then BLOPS - I have perhaps 20 hours and yesterday I leveled to 39...

Homefront seem to have a level progression closer to BLOPS but a more crucial level bump at 5 to get the really nice toys. BFBC2 still could be played with the first weapons... They did the job fine IMO. Some are of course better because they suit your style better and some are plain awesome - but not that necessary - a full auto shotgun won't bother a guy in the M1 any way... ;)
