UK CHART: Lego Indy knocks GTA off top spot

LucasArts' Lego Indiana Jones has become the first game in six weeks to outsell Rockstar’s GTA IV, according to official ChartTrack/ELSPA data.

The game replaces GTA IV at the top of the All Formats chart, having outsold it by three-to-one over the past week.

Sales of the title are split relatively evenly across the formats, with the Wii version the most successful with 27 per cent. The PS2 version shifts more than its PS3 equivalent (20 per cent and 17 per cent, respectively) – however both Sony formats lose out to Xbox 360, which took 22 per cent.

GTA IV drops one place to No.2, suffering a 44 per cent drop in sales on the way, whilst Codemasters’ Race Driver: GRID also drops by a single position – just 3,000 sales behind GTA in third place.

Sega’s Mario and Sonic slips from No.3 to No.4, whilst Nintendo’s Wii Play suffers the same fate – dropping from fourth position into fifth spot.

Microsoft claims the second biggest new release of the week with Ninja Gaiden II, which goes straight in at No.6.

Wii Fit fails to reach the top 40 for the third week in a row.

The full top ten for the week ending Saturday, June 7th reads:

1) Lego Indiana Jones – LucasArts
