UK Charts: FIFA Street 3 misses top 10

Full Chart-Track Top 40 inside.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games has continued its Michael Johnson-like domination of the UK All Formats Chart.

The Wii version dug its spikes in and accounted for 58 per cent of the sales this week, helping it to a second consecutive gold medal and fifth in its career.

More surprising was FIFA Street 3 only managing to debut at 11, despite being rather prominent on football hoardings and in telly adverts. It makes it the worst performing instalment in the series to date, with the original entering at three and the sequel at one.

Unreal Tournament 3 faired a little better, returning to the top flight at nine thanks to the freshly released PS3 version.

The other new entry in the chart was Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, which managed a rather disappointing first week at 37.

Otherwise the charts were rather predictable. Call of Duty 4 continued its well deserved success to hold on at two, Brain Training climbed to three, Devil May Cry 4 fell to four and Wii Play took five.

Game Party did well to jump from 15 to six, Turok fell to seven like a dying dinosaur, FIFA 08 was at eight and The Simpsons rounded the charts off at 10.
