THQ's Cars is still continuing to perform well at number five, while the rest of the top ten has been bumped down due to new releases. The Sims 2: Glamour Life Stuff sits at six, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories represents for Rockstar at number seven and New Super Mario Bros. for the DS is at number eight.

The Sims 2 and Dr Kawashima's Brain Training both slip three places to the number nine and ten positions respectively.

The week's highest climber is Sony's PSP Getaway spin-off Gangs of London, up from number 23 to number 11, while the only other new entry in the top 40 is Ubisoft's Xbox 360 title Enchanted Arms.
