The supermarket price wars continue to affect the UK games charts this week, with FIFA 10 not moving from the top spot and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising shooting up to second place in its first few days of sale.
EA's football game has been selling for as little as £25 in some supermarkets, which helped it launch to the top of the charts on release day and become the fastest selling sports title of all time. Not that it needed any real help doing so. Codemasters' Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising sold for £27 at ASDA on launch day and both games are selling comfortably under their £49.99 RRP at Tesco as well.
So, it's all change for the rest of the chart as Professor Layton gets kicked down to fourth place, Halo 3: ODST is teabagged to 6th and Guitar Hero 5 is being booed off the stage in 10th. Wii Sports Resort and, surprisingly, Mario Kart Wii are holding their own as non-movers, while Gran Turismo on PSP rises along with Wii Fit (again). Here's the breakdown.
