Mario Kart Wii hung onto the top spot in this week's UK All-Formats Top 40 as none of the top five changed places, while Brain Training managed to set a new record.

The DS think-'em-up made number eight (up one place), marking its 80th week in the top ten - one more than the original Tomb Raider, according to compilers Chart-Track.

Following the launch of PS3's Platinum range, this week also saw the introduction of a PS3 budget chart, with Uncharted, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, Buzz! Quiz TV, FIFA 08 and Ratchet & Clank setting the early sales pace in that category.

Otherwise it was another boring week, with Carnival: Funfair Games and WALL-E re-entering the top ten, and the rest of the 40 shuffling around only slightly.

However, with any luck that will change in seven days' time, as Too Human and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 are both released this Friday.
