Call of Duty: World at War has doubled the amount of UK unit sales that CoD4 managed during launch week...

This week's Chart Track data is in, revealing surprises that make this season's Premiership look predictable. Most notably, on its way to the number one spot on the UK charts, Treyarch's Call of Duty: World at War has doubled the week one sales figures of CoD4 on next-gen consoles and PC.

A larger installed base of Xbox 360 and PS3 owners could go some way to explaining this, although it'll be interesting to see whether World at War has the staying power in the charts that CoD4 did. Infinity Ward's title returned to the number one spot during the Christmas week last year, while World at War is currently the favourite for Christmas No.1 this year.

World at War also became the third fastest selling UK videogame in history (behind GTAs IV and San Andreas), but Activision Blizzard's chart domination didn't end there as the publisher managed to account for 25% of all sales last week with the release of Wrath of the Lich King and Guitar Hero World Tour's complete band packs.

The release of these bundles, which include the new drum peripheral (as well as guitar and microphone), caused the game to rise from number 17 last week to number 6 on the all format charts this week. World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King went straight in at number 2, surmounting Champ Man 4's 2003 record to become the fastest selling PC game in Chart Track history.

Football Manager 2009 entered the charts at number 3 this week and, in the process, recorded the most week one sales for any game in the series' history. 

The also rans were Mirrors Edge and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. While EA's parkour inspired game came in at number 20, Nuts & Bolts failed to even register on the top 40 of the all format chart (coming 15th in the Xbox 360 chart).

Have it for DS...Great game. I go online Wi-Fi: play for a while, and it says COMMUNICATION ERROR. IDK why but it seems to do that for no reason after playing the game online for a while. It is Unnacceptable. No reason to be having those while I'm online.
