UK charts: World at War still raging

Prince of Persia, Animal Crossing less so.

Call of Duty: World at War has notched up a fourth week in command of the UK All-Formats Chart. With just two weeks to go, looks like it's a strong contender to take the Christmas top spot.

Who will be the music chart companion, we wonder. Will it be Britney or Leona or Take That or Katy Perry? Or maybe Paul McCartney, who still manages to look like a cheeky boy even though he has jowls.

Anyway, Call of Duty: World at War has also marched past 1 million sales here in four weeks - half the time it took Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Animal Crossing Wii only managed to enter the chart at 26, while Ubisoft hopeful Prince of Persia spent its first week way down at 30.

The PC release of Grand Theft Auto IV made a minor splash to haul the massive-selling game back into the list at 22.

Elsewhere were few surprises: Mario Kart was at two, FIFA 09 solid at three, Brain Training up a touch to four, and Need For Speed muscled down to five.

Tomb Raider climbed slightly to six, Fallout 3 burst back at seven, Wii Fit took eight, Wii Play nine, and Guitar Hero: World Tour kept up momentum at 10.

Far Cry 2 was up from 28 to 17, Fable II climbed from 35 to 19, and there were rises (at last) for LittleBigPlanet and Mirror's Edge; the former went from 32 to 29, and the latter from 39 to 36.

This week waves goodbye to zombie shooter Left 4 Dead, but the uncounted Steam sales would presumably tell a different story.
