PES 2008 still top of UK charts

Sells twice as much as FIFA.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 has held on to the number one position in the UK All Formats chart for the second week running, GamesIndustry.biz reports.

And despite a 52 per cent drop in sales it still sold twice as many copies as closest competition FIFA 08, according to Chart Track data.

The Simpsons Game managed to debut at number three this week, followed by film tie-in Ratatouille, which shuffled up the charts a few places to spend its fifth week at number four - buoyed by the success of its cinema counterpart that has rats in.

Halo 3 sales surged by 46 per cent and helped it to number five, slightly ahead of the wilting Football Manager 2007 in six and new entry The Sims 2: Castaway in seven.

The rest of the top ten was taken up by DS exclusive titles More Brain Training, Brain Training and Phantom Hourglass.

Further down the list TimeShift spent its first week at number 24, while Hellgate: London only managed to reach 34.

Sales mean nothing without facts, as GamesIndustry.biz will tell you as it backs you into a corner at a party.
