UK Charts: Need for Speed Shifts
The UK charts - compiled as ever by Chart Track and copyright, as always, by ELSPA are in. Where last week the battle was between Guitar Hero 5 and The Beatles Rock Band, this week sees a return to old fashioned gaming form with the arrival of Need for Speed Shift in the Number 1 spot.

Chart Track breaks down the figures thus, "(with the) PS3 coming out as the top format with 52% of the sales, while Xbox 360 takes 44% and PC and PSP have the remaining 5%."

The other new entry in the Top 10 is Stranglehold... sorry, Wet from Bethesda. Our female gaming expertette will be giving her opinion on this Eliza Dushku.

Aside from these, it's the standard Top 10 shuffle as standard. See the chart below, with last week's position in brackets.

(1) - 2 - Guitar Hero 5 - Red Octane
(2) - 3 - Colin McRae: Dirt 2 - Codemasters

So is Beatles RB a flop? Started at 4 then down to 7. Is GH5 just better value?

That's first week sales for Wet where as Wii Fit must be around the 60th week mark by now. God knows how many it has sold over that time, as well as a ton on Ebay.

I imagine the PC Sales of Shift are relatively poor as it would only be playable if you had a Steering Wheel or Controller, added to the fact that PC's are of course now a minority when it comes to console level capable rigs... oh and it's easy as hell to steal the games. So i guess 5% after all tat is pretty good?
