Sleeping Dogs has reclaimed the All Formats All Prices UK video game chart No.1 spot, after slipping to No.2 last week.
Guild Wars 2 was always likely to be front-loaded because of its huge pre-purchase sales, so its 84 per cent drop-off doesn't surprise as the game slides to No.6.
The Sims 3: Supernatural is the week's only new entry at No.2, followed by New Super Mario Bros. 2, London 2012 and LEGO Batman 2.
Madden NFL 13 holds on at No.7, whilst Dead Island Game of the Year Edition climbs four places to No.8. Darksiders II continues to fall away, down three to No.9, and Modern Warfare 3 clings on at No.10.
Ubisoft's Ghost Recon: Future Solider places at No.13, the first time the game has charted outside the Top 10 since its release earlier this year. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is also falling fast, down to No.14.
