The Charts: Did PS3 Move Games Too?
You've already seen the PS3-only charts, now you can see how that fits into the All Formats charts with this week's run down in full.

As we reported earlier, the PS3's seen an attach rate of 1.65, so by our reckoning the PS3's sold around 11,706,750 worth of software.

Altogether six new PS3 games make an appearance in the Top 10, while the Top 40 sees 13 in total. Five of those are PS3 exclusives.

Sony nabs the top two spots with first party platform exclusives. Resistance: Fall of Man blasts its way in a t Number 1, while MotorStorm's hot on its heels at Number 2. This is Sony's first All Formats Number 1 since Shadow of the Collossus over a year ago.

Resistance and MotorStorm grabbing the top spots in the PS3 chart was no huge surprise, but seeing as the PS3 only launched on Friday (the day before the chart week ended) dominating the All Formats chart is no mean feat. Following the Wii launch the platform's best-performing title was Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess which entered the chart at Number 5.

Codemasters' multi-platform newcomer Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 bats its way in at Number 3. It's the one of two none-PS3 newbies to find their way into the Top 10 this week. It would seem that nothing'll boost sales of a cricket game like a bit of murder in the media.

It's another sporty one next up, with Sega's Virtua Tennis 3 on both the PS3 and 360 debuting at Number 4.

The PS3 release of Activision's Call of Duty 3 gives the game a boost, knocking it up from Number 20 to Number 5. Consequently Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories from Take 2 is bumped all the way down from Number 1 to Number 6.

Other PS3 games hanging around the Top 10 are Sony's Formula 1: Championship Edition (for which you can read a review here in at Number 7 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour '07 from EA at Number 9.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl from THQ on the PC is the other none-PS3 game to make a splash in the Top 10 this week. You can read SPOnG's review here.

Despite Ridge Racer topping the charts when the PSP was released, Ridge Racer 7 fails to make the Top 10, having to settle for Number 11.
