Halo: Reach tops UK chart as Sports Champions steals second

Reach is Microsoft's biggest ever UK launch week, fifth biggest UK launch overall

Halo: Reach has topped the UK all format chart this week, knocking Mafia II from it's three-week reign at number one.

Reach has become the biggest ever launch week title for Microsoft and the fifth biggest UK launch overall, behind Modern Warfare 2 on both PS3 and 360, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PS2 and Grand Theft Auto IV on 360.

Reach has also sold 20,000 more units than Halo 3 did in its first week and has smashed ODST's week one figure buy nearly 200,000.

Sony's Move has had some impact on the charts, too - Move-exclusive Sports Champions has gone straight in at number two, Start the Party! at 29 and Ubisoft's Racket Sports at 32.

Games which feature Move but are not exclusive to it have seen a small boost, but only Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 was significantly bolstered, seeing a 41 per cent increase in sales from last week which pushed it back up to number 9 in the chart from 17.
