Dead Island: Riptide holds on at the top of the All Formats All Prices UK Video Game chart for a third week, despite a 55 per cent drop in sales week-on-week. The first Dead Island game managed only two weeks at the top.

BioShock Infinite is the only other game to hold three consecutive weeks at the top in 2013.

Activision's Black Ops 2 climbs four places to No.2 thanks to a 60 per cent increase in sales brought about by retailer promotions. Tomb Raider is at No.3, Injustice falls from No.2 to No.4 and FIFA 13 drops a single place to No.5.

The week's highest new entry is Telltale's The Walking Dead at No.9, with PQube's Persona 4 Arena also new at No.11.

Star Trek The Video Game is the week's major loser, falling 14 places from No.10 to No.24.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Dead Island is unlikely to make it four weeks at the top with Deep Silver's Metro: Last Light looking like a tempting proposition for the FPS crowd. Also hitting stores is Nintendo's Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, which should make the Top 10.

It's also worth pointing out that high profile PS Vita release Soul Sacrifice has exited the Top 40 after just one week – it debuted at No.26.
