The Charts: Wii Fit Gets in a Brawl
Nintendo has managed to knock itself from the top of the Charts. Replenished stock has bumped Wii Fit all the way up from Number 7 to Number 1, with the title getting a 60% sales boost. Alas, that means that Smash Bros. Brawl has been knocked down a couple of pegs from the top spot.

Smash Bros lands at Number 3, following a 37% slide in sales. That puts it behind LucasArts' LEGO Indiana Jones, which has clambered up a spot to Number 2 - but only just crept past Smash Bros by 167 sales.

2K Sports' Top Spin 3 manages a 7% jump in sales, even with Wimbledon done and dusted. That puts it at Number 4, up from Number 6.

That leaves EA's Battlefield: Bad Company at Number 5, down from Number 2. Similarly, THQ's Big Beach Sports has slipped from Number 4 to Number 6 and SEGA's Beijing 2008 has slid from Number 5 to Number 8.

This week's big climbers are Activisionís Kung Fu Panda, up from Number 16 to Number 9 (thanks to the release of the film) and 2K Play's Carnival: Funfair Games, up from Number 23 to Number 15 thanks to hardware bundling.

New entries into the Top 40 this week are Wall-E from THQ at Number 16 (in its second week) and Ubisoft's Wii-exclusive Sports Party at Number 29.

Next week look for Guitar Hero: On Tour and Wii and PS2 appearances from The Incredible Hulk.
