UK chart: UFC knocks Wii Fit off pedestal

Punch-Out!! Hatton done very well.

UFC 2009: Undisputed debuts at the top of the UK All-Formats chart this week, abruptly halting the record-breaking top-spot attempt by Wii Fit.

Nintendo's balance board champion is further displaced by Pokémon Platinum at two and rival apple-eater EA Sports Active at three. Pokémon Platinum, incidentally, sells the most of any single game unit this week, what with UFC being multiformat.

The rest of the top 10 has barely changed, but there are other newcomers buried further down. Bionic Commando swings in at 14, Big Family Games arrives at 30 and the dreadful Damnation parks at 35.

The biggest shock, however, comes from Punch-Out!! on Wii, which misses the top 40 entirely and only manages to finish at seven in the platform-specific chart.

All that activity means previous headliners Street Fighter IV, Halo Wars, Gears of War 2 and Riddick: Dark Athena drop off the bottom.
