UK CHARTS: Batman still top

Eidos’ latest title based on the Caped Crusader, Batman: Arkham Asylum, is enjoying its second week at the top of the ELSPA GfK-ChartTrack All Formats Top 40 this week, despite continued pressure from Nintendo’s Wii Sports Resort.

The motion-based sports title has to settle for second spot for the third time in the last four months. Just behind it comes Activision’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which after the best part of two years on the market manages to jump from 10th spot as the series’ popularity endures.

Wii Fit and Ashes Cricket capture fourth and fifth spots respectively, whilst 505 Games’ IL2 Sturmovik enjoys a powerful debut, entering the listings at number six on its first week of release.

There’s another new entry in the Top 40, too – Square Enix’s PSP-only 2D fighting title Dissidia: Final Fantasy, which debuts in tenth. The only other new entry is Atari’s superhero-based MMO, Champions Online, which manages 18th in its first week of release.

There are a number of re-entries, too, with LittleBigPlanet (28th), Killzone 2 (30th), Sonic Unleashed (36th) and Halo 3 (40th) all upwardly mobile.

Here’s the ELSPA GfK-ChartTrack All Formats Top 10 in full (for the week ending September 5th):
1. Batman: Arkham Asylum (Eidos)
2. Wii Sports Resort (Nintendo)
3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (Activision Blizzard)
