Aliens vs. Predator, last week's top of the pops, was pushed into second. Just Dance, Wii Fit Plus, Modern Warfare 2, Wii Sports Resort and New Super Mario Bros. Wii followed.

There was another new entry at eight in the shape of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing.

Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes managed 39th on DS, and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories took 5th on PS2 and 11th on Wii. The latter was nowhere to be found on PSP.
