UK Charts: Lost Planet shoots to number one

Capcom's Lost Planet: Extreme Condition tops the UK All Formats charts on the first week of release, while Wii hardware sales jump 85 per cent, boosting software sales for the new Nintendo console

Capcom's Lost Planet: Extreme Condition has taken the number one spot in the UK All Formats charts on its first week of release.

The title, Capcom's second exclusive for the Xbox 360, breaks Electronic Arts' dominance of the coveted position, and sees the company repeat the first week success it celebrated with Dead Rising in September 2006.

Nintendo also has reason to celebrate this week, with Wii-exclusive Wario Ware: Smooth Moves entering the chart at number two, as a new supply of Wii hardware sees sales of the console jump by 85 per cent.

EA's FIFA 07 suffered a drop in sales of 59 per cent this week, with the title slipping to number three in the charts, with football rival Pro Evolution Soccer 6 from Konami at number four.

Rounding out the top five is Need for Speed: Carbon at number five, nudging Rockstar's Canis Canem Edit down one place to number six, and The Sims 2: Pets to number seven.

The highest climber this week is The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess which storms up the charts from number 36 to number eight, again proving that a fresh supply of Wii consoles has arrived in stores.

Microsoft's Gears of War climbs one place to number nine, with Activison's Call of Duty 3 sitting at number ten.

The only other new release this week is Sega's World Snooker Championship 2007 at number 17, while there are re-entries in the top forty from Wii Play at 19 and Red Steel at number 34.
