UK charts: Call of Duty 5 sells 1 million in four weeks

While Ubisoft's Prince of Persia only scrapes top 30 on weekend of release

Activision's Call of Duty: World at War has sold over one million units in the UK, after only four weeks at retail.

Sales have dropped 15 per cent from last week, but the latest in the popular shooter series still holds on to the number one spot in the region. It took last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare eight weeks to sell one million units.

But not all the big Christmas releases are enjoying the same success, as Ubisoft's latest Prince of Persia title has only managed to scrape the top 30 in the UKs All Formats chart despite heavy promotion.

The only other new entry in the top 40 this week is Nintendo's Animal Crossing: Let's Go to the City, complete with Wii Speak peripheral, at number 26.

Nintendo's top ten games have all enjoyed a boost this week, with Mario Kart Wii sales up 15 per cent, Wii Play sales up 5 per cent and Wii Fit up a massive 43 per cent.

The top ten All Formats sellers in the UK follow:

  • 01 Call of Duty: World at War
  • 02 Mario Kart Wii
  • 03 FIFA 09
  • 04 Dr Kawashima's Brain Training
  • 05 Need for Speed: Undercover
  • 06 Tomb Raider: Underworld
  • 07 Fallout 3
  • 08 Wii Fit
  • 09 Wii Play
  • 10 Guitar Hero: World Tour
