Safe to say Christmas season has begun.

Dead Island has gone straight into number one at the top of the UK charts. The Techland zombie title kicked Deus Ex: Human Revolution off the summit, with the Eidos Montreal reboot landing at five.

Gran Turismo 5 shoots up the charts out of nowhere to just about make the top ten list. This is due to the Polyphony Digital racer getting a re-release on the Platinum collection.

Other new entries in the top ten include Warhammer 40k: Space Marine in second, Resistance 3 in fourth and Starfox 64 3D in ninth. NHL 12 barely misses out in 12th, while Sega’s Kinect horror is in at 37.
