505 Games’ Sniper Elite V2 has held top spot in the all formats gaming chart making the first-person shooter the first title in the last few weeks to do so.
Elsewhere, Sony’s Starhawk can only manage a disappointing 17th position based on its first week of sales, something Sony will no doubt be hoping improves as word of their tactical online shooter spreads.
