EA’s FIFA 09 holds onto the No.1 position in this week’s ELSPA/Chart-Track’s official UK All Formats Top 40 – despite sales being down 47 per cent.
The football title – which has been garnering exceptional reviews – holds off the stern challenge of Lego Batman, which takes second spot in its debut week.

There are seven different publishers represented in this week’s All Formats Top 10, with four titles selling best on Xbox 360, and the remaining six top sellers on Wii.
Wii Fit steps up one place to No. 3, bouncing back after last week’s dip in stock, while Star Wars: The Force Unleashed slips two places to No.4.
Ubisoft also drops two places as Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway falls to No.5.
Performance of the week goes to Atari’s Family Trainer, which climbs from No.20 to No.9.
