UK charts: FIFA World Cup remains top

Sin and Punishment 2 falters.

A poor week for new releases sees few new entries in the UK all-formats chart, but then displacing EA's 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa this close to the real-life sporting event was always going to be a tall task, and the EA game remains number one.

Just Dance is just behind, followed by Modern Warfare 2, Wii Fit Plus and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. That's the first time Infinity Ward's shooter has overtaken DICE's creation in recent weeks, perhaps buoyed by PC and PS3 advertising for the Stimulus Package downloadable content.

Super Street Fighter IV staggered to sixth, tailed by Wii Sports Resort, Splinter Cell: Conviction and Grand Theft Auto IV: Episodes from Liberty City. Just Cause 2 rounded out top 10.

Last week's headline new release Sin and Punishment: Successor of the Skies missed the big-time and finished 11th on the Wii chart.
