Tomb Raider clings on to second place in the UK charts.

Irrational Games’ BioShock Infinite has remained top of the UK charts for its second week of release, despite a 75 percent drop in overall sales, while Trion’s massively multiplayer online shooter Defiance has landed in third position.

Defiance is a new IP designed to tie in to the SyFy TV series of the same name, which premieres in the UK on April 16. The game sold the vast majority of its copies on the Xbox 360, with 76 percent of sales attributed to Microsoft’s platform.

Square Enix’s Tomb Raider clings to second place for the third week running, with EA’s FIFA 13 also remaining in fourth.

3DS-exclusive Luigi’s Mansion 2 remains fifth for its second week, while Epic Games’ Gears of War: Judgment drops three places to sixth.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is seventh, Assassin’s Creed III is eighth, Skylanders Giants is ninth, and Need for Speed: Most Wanted is 10th.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the 3DS and Wii U is nowhere to be seen in the full top 40, although Nintendo has said it is having issues providing copies of the game to retailers.
