Dead Space 2 has entered into the top spot at this week’s UK charts, displacing LittleBigPlanet 2 at number one.

The Visceral horror also topped the Xbox 360 chart, while it debuted in second place on the PS3 and PC charts.

The 360 version was the biggest-selling of the three SKUs, with 56 percent to PS3’s 40 percent, despite having a HD version of Dead Space: Extraction bundled into the Sony version.

Disc-based PC sales made up only 4 percent of the total.

LittleBigPlanet 2 placed at second in the all-formats chart, with FIFA 11 at three, Assassins Creed: Brotherhood at fourth and Black Ops fifth.
