UK charts: Prototype works for Acti

Ghostbusters calls in at four.

Prototype has unseated The Sims 3 at the top of the UK all-formats chart after its second week on sale.

The Sims 3 is still strong at two, followed by chart familiar Wii Fit at three. Ghostbusters makes its debut on PS2 and PS3 at four.

Other new entries are Virtua Tennis 2009 on Wii, pushing the multiformat game up to nine, and ArmA II on PC, which enters at 19.

Rock Band Unplugged and Let's Tap struggle, taking three and 14 in their respective platform lists.

Elsewhere there are good weeks for Call of Duty: World at War, Professor Layton and the Curious Village, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings and Resident Evil 5.

Those dropping off the bottom include Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.
