At five is Electronic Arts' third title in the top five, The Sims 2: Pets, with Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 6 at six and Activision's Call of Duty 3 dropping down the charts from number three to number seven.

Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy holds on to the number eight position, while Bratz: Forever Diamondz leaps up the charts from number 27 to number nine thanks to the DS release. Just hanging in at number ten is Rockstar's PSP exclusive Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

The only other new releases in the top forty are Activision's Tony Hawk's Project 8 at number 18 and Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerebus at number 28.
