FIFA knocks Gears off top

UK Charts: NFS up to two.

In the run up to Christmas, Electronic Arts has taken FIFA 07 back to the top of the All Formats charts, knocking last week's number one, Gears of War, down to number three.

Shifting gears to take the number two position is Need for Speed Carbon, a franchise that has taken the coveted Christmas number one title in previous years.

EA also takes the number four position with The Sims 2: Pets, while Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 6 manages to climb this week, up one place to number five.

THQ's wrestler WWE Smackdown Vs RAW drops three places to number six, just ahead of three titles all staying in the same position as last week: Call of Duty 3 at seven, Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy at eight and Bratz: Forever Diamonds at nine.

Cars manages to sneak back into the top ten at number 10, proving there's still plenty of life left in the movie tie-in.

This week's only new entry in the top forty is Activison and RedOctane's Guitar Hero II, making its debut at number 16.

Meanwhile, a number of high-profile new entries have failed to make the top forty, including SEGA's Sonic The Hedgehog on Xbox 360, the multiformat Happy Feet from Midway, EA's Cricket 07, Deep Silver's Warhammer: Mark of Chaos and Eidos' latest Who Wants to be a Millionaire: Party Edition.
