Red Dead holds off Mario Galaxy 2

Rockstar continues flogging Dead horses.

Red Dead Redemption maintained its horseshoe-like grip on the top of the UK charts this week despite the launch of Super Mario Galaxy 2 for Wii on Friday.

Nintendo's evergreen plumber came in at number two, displacing 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa despite the tournament finally beginning. World Cup's at three.

Rooms: The Main Building pushed up to fourth, but the only other new entry in the All-Formats Top 40 was Green Day: Rock Band in 14th.

There were re-entries though for Uncharted 2, which swung up to 16 thanks to a PS3 Platinum launch, and Dante's Inferno, which came in at 30.

The top 10 had a familiar feel to it though, with Just Dance at five, Wii Fit Plus six, Modern Warfare 2 seven, The Sims 3: Ambitions eight, UFC Undisputed 2010 at nine and Wii Sports Resort in 10.

Despite a fairly weak start, Blur held on at 11 in the battle of the arcade racers, while ModNation Racers clung on in 15th and Split/Second: Velocity sank slightly to 19th.
