UK charts: Just Dance defeats MW2

Ubisoft's Wii game comes from behind.

An unlikely champion has been found in Ubisoft's Wii game Just Dance, which has ended Modern Warfare 2's nine-week honeymoon atop the UK all-formats chart.

Just Dance sales were up 114 per cent from last week, which boosted the game from third into first.

The game has been on sale for seven weeks already, and gone from relative obscurity at the bottom of the chart to giant-killing at the top.

But had Just Dance not ended MW2's reign, Wii Fit Plus would have, after Nintendo's sporty number moved into second ahead of Activision's record-breaking war game.

This week's big newcomer, Army of Two: The 40th Day (Eurogamer review) entered the chart in fourth.

Meanwhile, SEGA's debutant Vancouver 2010 was absent from the Top 40, having piste-off into the separate PS3 and Xbox 360 charts in 18th and 29th, respectively.

Both of last week's newcomers Bayonetta and Darksiders stayed prominent in the top 10, although their roles were reversed and Darksiders finished the stronger of the pair.

Wii Sports Resort (5), Darksiders (6), Bayonetta (7), FIFA 10 (8), Avatar (9) and Assassin's Creed II (10) round out the top 10.
