UK charts: suburb week for Sims 3

Prototype unlucky, Staff of Kings in trouble.

The Sims 3 holds on to the UK All-Formats top spot for a second week, fending off shape-shifting newcomer Prototype at two.

Grand Slam Tennis misses a top seed to enter at 13, while Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings will whip itself after a disappointing start at 32. Our Staff of Kings review was published this morning.

The only other retail release last week was Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball, which misses both All-Formats and Wii-specific top 40s.

Elsewhere in the All-Formats top 40, Call of Duty: World at War surges back into the top 10, and Wii balance board game Jillian Michaels' Fitness Ultimatum has a strong second week to climb to 20.

FUEL runs low and falls to 24, as does Star Ocean: The Last Hope, which spends a second week further adrift at 27.

Among those falling off the bottom this week are Halo Wars, Resident Evil 5 and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. How Logan you go?
