Modern Warfare 2 becomes UK's all time best-selling game

Knocks Nintendo's Dr Kawashima's Brain Training off top-spot after 41 weeks

Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has become the UK's biggest-selling game of all time, exceeding the sales of Dr Kawashima's Brain training, 41 weeks after release.

Only three weeks of those 41 have seen Modern Warfare 2 take a chart place outside the top ten, including this week, which saw the game take 18th, down ten places from last month's eight.

Sales of the first person shooter will no doubt go some way to support Activision's claim that it will become the world's most profitable entertainment company in the next five or ten years.

The title had already entered the record books after achieving record sales for its opening day, with first day sales of more than $401.6 million (£242.4m), making it the biggest entertainment launch of all time.
