Debuting at No.2 is Codemasters’ self-developed tactical shooter Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, which is now the publisher’s biggest-selling launch title.

Gran Turismo on PSP manages to put its foot on the accelerator and move up five place to No.7. Meanwhile, Batman falls out of the top 10, dropping four places to No.14.

It seems that the threat of piracy hasn’t done too much to damage the sales of Scribblenauts, as it’s the second-highest new entry at No.12. The next two new entries debut together, with Star Wars: Clone Wars – Republic Heroes at No.15 closely followed by Kingdom Hearts 358/2 at No.16.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl makes an unexpected re-appearance at No.33, which is five places ahead of a new Nintendo title, as the next instalment in the Mario & Luigi RPG saga debuts at No.38.

Toy Story Mania is the biggest climber this week, jumping up twelve places to No.28. The biggest loser this week is IL2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey which fell thirteen places to No. 31.
