UK charts: Wii Fit in No. 1 again shocker

F.E.A.R. 2 fails to scare off Nintendo.

Wii Fit has held firm atop the UK all-formats chart this week, despite F.E.A.R. 2 putting the frighteners on and entering at two.

The Warner Bros. shooter did secure the top spots in the Xbox 360 and PS3 charts, incidentally, but can't budge Football Manager 2009 from the top of the PC list.

F.E.A.R. 2 sells much faster than the original, thanks to a multiformat launch. Half of the sales are for the Xbox 360 SKU, while the PS3 picks up 31 per cent and the PC claims 19 per cent.

Further down, there are new entries for Ben 10: Alien Force at 13 and The House of the Dead: Overkill at 15. The latter manages third in the Wii-specific chart, beaten by best-sellers Wii Fit and Mario Kart Wii.

Elsewhere seven of the top 10 games are for Nintendo formats, and half are published by the platform holder.

This week the chart waves goodbye to Resistance 2, Fallout 3 and Gears of War 2.
