Its Ashes Cricket 2009 game outsold the flagship Wii Motion Plus game Wii Sports Resort, which is only in its third week on the market.

More impressively Ashes didn't just rely on dominating the Wii. Its sales were quite evenly spread across all the consoles. And it's the first British-produced number one game for two years.

According to Codemasters, all its stock is already spoken for, making the game positive proof that ‘Britsoft' publishing still has the savvy to succeed against bigger rivals.
