Most of the games in the top 10 have fallen a place to make way for the might of Fight Night, but UFC Undisputed has perhaps benefitted from a renewed interest in the fighting genre, as it moves up two places from No5 to No7. Ghostbusters suffers the opposite fate however, dropping six places from No4 to No10.

Although there are a higher-than-usual nine new entries into this weeks chart, only two of those managed to break into the top 10. The second one being the probably-abysmal Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen which goes in at No6.

Its been a long while since a PSP exclusive managed to make its way into the Top 40, but Monster Hunter: Freedom Unite does just that, being the bestselling PSP game this week, and managing to debut at No24.

The release of Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits at No18 means that there are a mere three Guitar Hero games are currently in the Top 40. With Activision planning to release Guitar Hero 5, Guitar Hero: Val Halen and Band Hero before the end of the year, plus this weeks release of Guitar Hero: On Tour – Modern Hits (which didnt make it into the top 40), Activision clearly aren’t done whoring this franchise into the ground.
