EA's FIFA Street holds on at the top of the All Formats All Prices UK video game chart for a third week, despite competition from new release Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 which pars the hole to place in third.

Mass Effect 3 climbs one place to No.2, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City takes fourth and FIFA 12 drops one place to No.5.

Elsewhere there are plenty of new entries, headed by Namco Bandai's Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations at No.6. Namco Bandai won't be so pleased with the performance of Ridge Racer Unbounded, which gets off to a diabolical start at No.21.

Konami too will be somewhat scared after its Silent Hill duo failed to do the business: HD Collection did pretty much as expected at No.12, but a No.15 new entry for Downpour is bad news for the future of the franchise.

Nintendo's Pokepark 2 also makes it into the Top 40 at No.38 but isn't actually a new release.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Once again we see some major gaming brands failing to bring in good sales for publishers. Tiger Woods might see a boost this week with increased interest in golf thanks to the publicity for The Masters.

Things are looking much gloomier for Silent Hill Downpour and Ridge Racer Unbounded, both of which are likely to be heavily discounted by retailers in the next few weeks.

Kinect Star Wars is certainly getting enough air time to be in the public eye, so we could be looking at the first real Kinect hit since the motion controller launched. Elsewhere Capcom's Devil May Cry HD could achieve a new entry slightly above that of Silent Hill's HD collection.
