Fifa '09 becomes fastest-selling installment in the series

It seems football fans have been out in force this week, as Fifa '09 scores the top spot in the UK All-Formats chart and becomes the fastest-selling installment in the series.

In fact, the game was so popular that only GTA IV and Halo 3 have sold more in the first week on Xbox 360, and only GTA IV on PS3.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed conceded defeat and moved down to number two, with Brothers Arms: Hell's Highway pushing its way to three ahead of Wii Fit at number four.

There was not much change in the rest of the top 10 with Fifa being the only new entry into the top flight. Instead it seems games were simply shuffling positions, with Mario Kart Wii dropping two places to five, pushing Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 and Wii Play down to six and seven respectively.

Pure, the lively racing game from Disney, swapped places with Big Beach Sports, with Pure dropping down to nine and Big Beach Sports jumping up to eight, while Carnival: Funfair Games - last week's number 7 - rounded off the this week's best sellers at number 10.

Across the rest of the chart, there were not many other new releases to note. However, Warhammer took quite a tumble from 13 to 32 and Too Human, Crysis Warhead, PES 2008 and Fifa 2008 waved goodbye to the top 40 altogether
