UK CHART: Gears of War marches to the top

Microsoft mega release Gears of War 2 has brushed off stiff competition from Sony and Nintendo this week to claim the No. 1 spot in the GfK-ChartTrack Top 40.

Meanwhile, last week’s number one, Fallout 3, slips to third place as FIFA ’09 holds firm in second position.

Sony’s much-hyped and critically acclaimed LittleBigPlanet makes its grand entrance in fourth spot, with THQ’s Smackdown Vs. Raw 2009 wrestling into fifth place. Nintendo also gets in on the act, with DS release Professor Layton and the Curious Village making it to No. 6.

Other new entries this week includes Guitar Hero: World Tour in at No. 17, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift in at No. 29 and Tom Clancy’s End War in No. 30.
