UK charts: Force Unleashed the new star

WAR also strong. Top 40 inside.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has crushed opposition and taken top honours in the UK all-formats chart this week, in what was the biggest multi-platform launch since GTA IV.

The Xbox 360 version bossed 48 per cent of total sales, with 30 per cent falling to PS3, 15 per cent on Wii, and the remainder on PS2, PSP and DS.

Chart stalwarts Wii Fit and Mario Kart Wii took two and three, thanks to renewed stock, which helped them fend off the other top 10 newcomer Warhammer Online at four.

The rest was a familiar picture: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 at five, last week's leader Mercenaries 2 at 6, Wii Play up to 7, Carnival: Funfair Games at 8 and TNA iMPACT at 9.

Spore, the fourth EA title in the top flight, rounded out the list at 10.

Further down, Crysis Warhead made its debut at 21, just ahead of a resurgent Too Human up from 38 to 22.

The pack shuffled rather a lot this week, with a handful of past chart faces such as Need For Speed and LEGO Star Wars reappearing.

This means waving goodbye to Soulcalibur IV, Viva Piata 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4.
