GTA IV celebrates fifth week on top

UK Charts: GRID at two, Wii Fit nowhere.

Grand Theft Auto IV sales declined by 22 percent in the UK this week but it still managed to hold onto top spot in the Chart-Track All-Formats Top 40.

Codemasters put up the strongest challenge to GTA's dominance, cutting through the field to number two overall and two on the 360 chart, although it could only make it to three on PS3 as Haze put up a strong enough fight to stay there - and at six in the overall standing.

Elsewhere in the chart, Rock Band in 12th place was beaten by Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock at 11, while Enemy Territory: Quake Wars managed 15th in its first week on sale on PS3 and 360 and Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures tumbled from two to 16.

However, there's no sign anywhere of Wii Fit, which remains in short supply around the world, with Chart-Track noting that it's not only slipped out of the All-Formats Top 40 but out of the Wii Top 40 as well.

This Friday sees the release of LEGO Indiana Jones, Ninja Gaiden 2 and the PC version of Mass Effect. Will any of them have the proverbials to oust Niko Bellic and company? We shall see. And then report with slightly unconvincing enthusiasm.
