EA scores first boxing No1. with Fight Night Round 4

Seven new games hit the top 40 this week

EA is back at the top of the sales charts this week with its new release Fight Night Round 4 - a feat which marks the first time a boxing game has reached the all formats chart top position.

The latest GfK Chart-Track data puts the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 boxing game just ahead of Activision Blizzard's Prototype, which moves from its number one position last week to number two, and The Sims 3 and Nintendo's Wii Fit, both of which shuffle one chart place down from last week.

Activision Blizzard make appearances with two other new games - Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen which debuts in the number six position and Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits at number 18, while Call of Duty: World at War remains in a high position at number seven.

Other new releases into the top 40 this week are Codemasters' Overlord II at number 17, Capcom's Monster Hunter: Freedom Unite at number 25 (the highest placed PSP game in the all formats chart), Koei's Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires at number 31, Spore: Galactic Adventures at number 37 and Atari's Tales of Vesperia at number 38.

The UK top ten chart in full follows:

  • 01 Fight Night Round 4
  • 02 Prototype
  • 03 The Sims 3
  • 04 Wii Fit
  • 05 UFC 2009: Undisputed
