The long-awaited Killzone 3 blew up all-comers in the UK charts this week, outselling every other game to make it all the way to the top.

The week's other high-profile release was Epic Games' multiplatform Bulletstorm which, in its Xbox 360-exclusive Epic Edition comes with beta access to Gears of War 3, but not even the allure of playing the 360's biggest exclusive of 2011 was enough to outsell Guerilla Games' latest title.

However, first week sales weren't as strong as those of predecessor Killzone 2: while 2009's entry was Sony's fifth biggest opening week ever, 2011's follow-up is the 14th best week.
