Deep Silver's Dead Island has made it two weeks at the top of the All Formats All Prices UK Video game chart, selling more units than any other Deep Silver title has.

The continued success of Dead Island comes in the wake of widespread stock shortages and a price hike to £47.99 in GAME stores.

THQ's Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine also holds firm at No.2, followed by Resistance 3, Driver: San Francisco and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The week's only new entry is Sony's God of War Collection Volume II at No.35.

Massive price reductions on Red Faction: Armageddon saw it secure a huge 246 per cent sales increase and jump back into the Top 40 at No.11, while SEGA's Rise of Nightmares managed a 50 per cent sales increase to chart at No.18.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Gears of War 3 will be No.1 next week, but Codemasters' F1 is also likely to do very good business for the UK publisher.

I did *not * expect that result at all - very surprised that Deus Ex didn't re-take the lead, given the amount of new stock being sold at the Game stores I visited last week...

Still think it's gonna hit the Zavvi Mega Monday sales anytime soon?

It always amazes me that games which are apparently hard to come by still manage to top the charts week in week out.
