The Charts: Can Midway Put EA In Stranglehold?
Electronic Arts manages to hold off a two-fisted assault from Midway in this week's Charts, with Medal of Honor: Airborne fending off an attack from John Woo's Stranglehold.

Airborne manages to retain the Number 1 spot in the All Formats Chart, despite being dislodged from the top of the Xbox 360 Chart by the Tequila-tastic Stranglehold. Midway makes do with the Number 2 spot in the All Formats Chart.

Two other new entries grace the Top 10 this week. Nintendo's Super Paper Mario for the Wii is the next highest new entry, bounding into the Charts at Number 4. Sony's Heavenly Sword, meanwhile, begins its Chart life at Number 7. You can catch SPOnG's review of the hack-'n'-slash here.

EA's Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 slips one place this week to Number 3, but the company's Sims 2: Bon Voyage retains last week's position at Number 8.

Codemasters' Colin McRae: DiRT re-enters the Top 40 thanks to the release of the PS3 version following McRae's tragic death at the weekend.

Rugby 08 from EA on the PC and PS2 enjoys a sales surge thanks to the World Cup kicking off, climbing from Number 40 to Number 22.
Forza Motorsport 2[/url] also enjoys a renewed Chart presence, re-entering the Charts at Number 37 thanks to a new promotional Microsoft Entertainment bundle.

Next week watch out for appearances from EA's MySims on Wii and DS, Sony's SingStar Rock Ballads on the PS2, PGA Tour 08 making its PS3 debut, Sony's Warhawk (which you can catch a review of here) for PS3 seeing Blu-ray release and Sierra's World in Conflict debuting on the PC.
