GTA IV tops 1 million sales in UK

Doing better on 360, it seems. Top 40 inside.

Grand Theft Auto IV has hung onto its top spot in the UK All Formats Chart this week despite a meaty 77 percent drop in sales.

It saw the acclaimed Rockstar game surge past the one million mark, as the format-favourite gap widened in Microsoft's favour: 62 percent of total sales were on Xbox 360, compared to 55 percent last week.

Wii Fit felt the burn a little and dropped 48 percent of last week's sales, but still managed to stretch its way to two.

Below was Wii Play at three, which swapped places with Mario & Sonic at the Olympics at four.

Iron Man did some science spectaculars to jump from 11 to five, with Call of Duty 4 at six, PES 2008 at seven, and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue at eight.

Rounding off the chart were Mario Kart Wii at nine and Brain Training at 10, helping Nintendo prolong its crown as the most well represented publisher in the Top 10.

There were no new entries this week and little movement across the chart. Those that did a little hopping around were Carnival Games up from 37 to 22, and LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, Football Manager 2008 and WWE SmackDown vs Raw 2008 all managing to get back into the Top 40.
