UK Charts: Wii Sports Resort Chasing Modern Warfare 2
The UK Charts are in for the week thanks to GfK Chart-Track, and all signs show no stopping of Modern Warfare 2, which despite an 11% decline in sales from last week is sitting at #1 for the fifth week running. Activision?s war game is a hot contender for the Christmas #1.

Hot on its tail this week however is Wii Sports Resort, which has shot up from 5th place to 2nd and gained 17% in sales. Assassin?s Creed II hangs tight in third, with fewer games being sold (-3%). Like its sporty brother, Wii Fit Plus (+11%) is having something of a resurgence to #4 - the shake-up tackles FIFA 10 (-15%) to fifth position.

Once on top of the world, New Super Mario Bros. Wii (-5%) is sliding down the charts to #6, but other titles he?s featuring in are holding their own, with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games (+15%) and Mario Kart Wii (+18%) at 7 and 10 respectively. Microsoft?s Forza Motorsport 3 sticks to ninth but gains 15% in sales.

The big surprise is Ubisoft?s Just Dance, which hits #8 but came all the way from position 30! The jump represents an astronomical 274% increase in sales. Lord knows the reasoning for it all - perhaps worries of dancing like a pro at the office Christmas party is encouraging all the sales.

Next week we should have the results of the Christmas #1. Who?s taking bets?
