The Charts: Has Tiger Woods Teed Off BioShock?
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 tees off its Charts run this week, but it hasn't driven hard enough to take down the might of BioShock.

Despite a 39% slip in sales following last week's chart debut, BioShock hangs in at Number 1. (To see what's got everyone so moist for BioShock, take a look at SPOnG's review). While it has not been able to snag the top spot away from 2K's wet shooter, Electronic Arts' Tiger Woods title debuts at Number 2, notching up 42% of its sales on the Xbox 360 and 32% on the Wii.

Behind PGA Tour 08 at Number 3 for a third week is Nintendo's Brain Training for the DS, closely followed by Activision's Transformers, which slips from Number 2 to Number 4.

The brain training trend continues at Number 5, with More Brain Training dropping a place from Number 4. Nintendo's brainy offering for the Wii, Big Brain Academy, benefits from increased supply to climb from Number 23 to Number 6.

Ubisoft's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 creeps stealthily up three places from Number 10 to Number 7, followed by EA's Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at Number 8.

THQ's Stuntman: Ignition crashes recklessly into the Charts at Number 9 for the 360 and PS2. Nintendo's Pokémon: Diamond rounds out the Top 10 after dropping four places from Number 6.

The back end of the Top 20 sees the release of two PC expansion packs, with SEGA's Medieval II: Total War – Kingdoms battling in at Number 16 and NCSoft's Guild Wars: Eye of the North not far behind at Number 18.

Wii Play does the opposite to Big Brain Academy, slipping 21 places from Number 5 to Number 26 thanks to lack of stock.

EA's new intellectual property for the Wii, Boogie, makes a disappointing entry into the Charts at Number 28, just behind another EA release: Madden NFL '08. The American (or as SPOnG likes to refer to it, 'pretend') football game makes its first Chart appearance at Number 27 thanks to the launch of the 360 and Wii versions and some strange members of the public who don't realise that rugby league is the one true sport of England.

Another disappointing Chart debut is Team17's Worms: Open Warfare 2 for the DS and PSP, which only just wriggles into the Charts at Number 38.

Next week keep an eye out for SEGA's Alien Syndrome on the Wii and PSP and EA's The Sims 2: Bon Voyage.
