EA's snowboarding rival of SSX has resonated well with fans, allowing the title to surge to the top of the UK video game sales charts ahead of Mario Party 9.

Nintendo's new release on the Nintendo Wii could only appear in 3rd, which could have been due to GAME declining to stock the title upon its release.

The rest of the top 10 was filled with familiar faces, complemented by Uncharted: Golden Abyss and FIFA Football on the PlayStation Vita. FIFA 12 rose to 2nd, while UFC Undispited 3, Modern Warfare 3, Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Battlefield 3 made up the rest of the spaces.

Other recent releases started to drop-off though, with Final Fantasy XIII-2 sinking to 15th, while Syndicate dropped down to 11th. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning did rise slightly though, from 26th to 22nd.
