UK CHARTS: FIFA holds its crown

Electronic Arts' FIFA 10 has remained the best-selling game of the week - it's still the UK's No.1 game.

The all-conquering football franchise, which EA only last week revealed had sold through almost 2m units in Europe, was one of the biggest game launches ever a week ago and interest doesn't seem to have waned.

Elsewhere in the charts, there's a new entry straight in at No.2 - Codemasters' Operation Flashpoint. Like FIFA 10, the game benefitted from keen price promotion at supermarkets and strong reviews.

Need For Speed Shift meanwhile rises a place to No.3.

There are other high-climbers, too: Gran Turismo PSP shoots into the top ten, up from 12 to No.7, while Wii Fit moves up from No.11 to No.8.

Other hits have had to slip due to the continuing success of FIFA and Need For Speed and Flashpoint's debut.

So Professor Layton moves down to No.4, Halo 3: ODST moves to sixth, and Guitar Hero 5 is now at No.10. Wii Sports Resort holds firm at fifth.

The full Top 10 is as follows:

1. FIFA 10
2. OPERATION FLASHPOINT 2: DRAGON RISING
3. NEED FOR SPEED: SHIFT
4. PROFESSOR LAYTON AND PANDORA'S BOX
5. WII SPORTS RESORT
6. HALO 3: ODST
7. GRAN TURISMO
8. WII FIT
9. MARIO KART WII
10. GUITAR HERO 5
