Nintendo’s ‘Wii Fit’ (-17%) takes a third consecutive week at the top to equal Nintendo’s previous 2nd best chart topper, ‘Pokemon Gold’ which also managed 7 weeks at No1 back in 2001. To become Nintendo’s longest serving All Formats No1 it needs another 4 weeks at the top which will better ‘Pokemon Yellow’ (10 weeks at the top way back in 2000).


Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty: World at War’ (-11%) remains at No2 and EA’s ‘FIFA 09’ climbs one place to No3 (+9%). Nintendo’s DS ‘Professor Layton and the Curious Village’ continues to climb thanks to replenished stock (+54%) up 6 places to No4. EA’s new release from last week ‘Skate 2’ falls 2 places to No5 (-28%) followed at No6 by Nintendo’s ‘Mario Kart Wii’ (+5%). Nintendo’s ‘Wii Play’ drops one place to No7 (-19%) whilst the other new release from last week, Ubisoft’s ‘My Fitness Coach’ drops one place to No8 (-12%). Eidos remain at No9 with ‘Tomb Raider: Underworld’ (+2%) and EA re-enter the Top 10 with ‘Need for Speed: Undercover’ climbing 3 places to No10 (-3%). This week’s new releases do not make the Top 40 but EA’s ‘SimAnimals’ debuts at No16 on the Wii Full Price chart and at No20 on the DS Full Price chart. On the PC Entertainment Full Price chart Ubisoft debut at No6 with ‘CSI: New York’ and THQ debut at No18 with ‘Saints Row 2’.
