Forza Motorsport 4 accelerates to top of UK charts

Acclaimed racing sequel Forza Motorsport 4 has cruised into pole position in the UK all-formats sales chart in its debut week.

Turn 10 Studios' new simulation managed to edge out reigning champion FIFA 12 to top the official GfK-ChartTrack rankings, achieving the best ever launch for an Xbox 360 racing game in the process.

Forza was one of several big-name new entries in the chart, with new Wii and Xbox 360 release Just Dance 3 slotting in behind FIFA 12 to claim third.

Holdover hit Rage came fourth, while FIFA 12's football rival PES 2012 made its arrival in fifth place this week.

Other newcomers to the top 20 this week included the likes of Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

Next week sees the debut of one of the most anticipated games of the year with the launch of Batman: Arkham City on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with the PC version to follow next month.
