UK CHARTS: Mario & Sonic reclaim chart gold

After mounting a resurgence that would make even Olympian giant Carl Lewis raise an eyebrow, Sega’s Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games has claimed the top spot in the ChartTrack All Formats Top 40 for the fourth time.

The game’s resurgence is largely thanks to the release of the DS version, which accounted for 93 per cent of the sales last week.

Making way for the colourful sports sim is Capcom’s Devil May Cry 4, which slips to number two after just seven days at the summit of ChartTrack’s listings. Disney’s Turok holds firm in third spot, though Activision’s Call of Duty 4 is hot on its heels after climbing three places to fourth position.

The only new entries in the charts this week are Midway’s Wii collection Game Party at number 15 and 505 Games’ culinary sequel Cooking Mama 2 on DS at number 33.

The ChartTrack All Formats Top 10:

1. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (Sega)
2. Devil May Cry 4 (Capcom)
3. Turok (Disney)
4. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Activision)
