We all know that Super Mario Galaxy 2 is something special, and it seems most of the UK public knows it as well, buying up enough copies since Friday's launch to put the game at number two in the UK all-formats chart.

Whilst it couldn't topple multiplatform behemoth Red Dead Redemption, second position is not to be sniffed at, with reportedly fewer than 1,000 units between the two titles. It is, however, the first territory where the game has not landed at the top slot, after extremely strong sales in Japan and North America.

In other charts news, recent puzzler release Rooms: The Main Building rose from number 12 to number 4 with evergreen Wii games Just Dance, Wii Fit Plus and Wii Sports Resort also still present in the top ten.
