This week’s issue reveals that Activision Blizzard has hit the top of the chart for the first time this year with super hero action game Prototype. And, as our Price Check section demonstrates, the title is also holding its RRP across the High Street, with only slight discounting from the online retailers.

Ghostbusters, meanwhile, debuts in the All Formats Top 40 at number four and, unsurprisingly, takes the top spot on the PS3 chart.

All the ELSPA/GfK/ChartTrack charts are featured in Retail Biz each week, while MCV also boasts the exclusive independent retail charts.

Elsewhere in MCV’s Retail Biz guide, our full listing of upcoming releases highlights Ubisoft’s Wild West shooter Call of Juarez and EA’s Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10.
