UK Charts: Hitman makes a killing

Eidos title knocks FIFA off the all-formats top spot.

It's all change at the top this week as Hitman: Blood Money knocks FIFA World Cup Germany 2006 from the number one spot, giving Eidos its second all-formats chart topper of the year.

Hitman: BM is the best-selling game on Xbox 360, PS2, PC and Xbox this week, while FIFA slips into second place. There's no sign of football fever abating, though, with PES 5 in third, and Championship Manager 2006 managing to remain in the top ten at No. 9.

It's a new entry in fourth place for Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis, the Xbox 360 title that takes bat and ball gameplay back to basics. Eidos's first all-formats number one of 2006, Tomb Raider: Legend, is down one place to No. 5.

In sixth place it's X-Men: The Official Game, with fellow movie tie-in The Da Vinci Code up four places to No. 8. Animal Crossing: Wild World is moving up the charts again from No. 9 to No. 7, while The Sims 2 slips back in at ten.

New releases entering the chart this week include Microsoft's Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends, at 37, and Super Princess Peach for Nintendo DS, which debuts at No. 29. The DS has the potential to dominate the charts in the coming weeks as highly anticipated titles such as Brain Training arrive in Europe - along with the new DS Lite, due to hit the shops on June 23rd, followed by New Super Mario Bros. a week later.
