GfK ChartTrack reports that Halo: Reach has entered the All Formats All Prices UK video game chart at No.1, recording Microsoft's biggest ever launch week and the fifth biggest launch ever in the UK.

Halo: Reach's debut week is behind Modern Warfare 2 on Xbox 360 and PS3, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PS2 and GTA4 on Xbox 360.

Despite the huge increase in installed base, Halo: Reach could only improve on Halo 3's launch week by 20,000 sales, but did eclipse Halo 3: ODST by nearly 200,000 units.

Sony's PlayStation Move title, Sports Champions, is a new entry at No.2, while Mafia II is demoted to No.3.

The rest of the PlayStation Move launch line-up couldn't match the success of Sports Champions, with Start the Party! At No.29 and Ubisoft's Racket Sports at No.32.

The week's only other new entry is EA's NHL 11 at No.26.

Look out for a flurry of new releases this week - Dead Rising 2, F1 2010, Quantum Theory, Final Fantasy XIV, Civilization V, Darksiders (PC) - but will anything be able to topple Halo?

I presume these charts go on unit sales and not on whether it's a full price sale.
PoP seems to be everywhere at the moment for £12 - £15 (which is an absolute steal for this severely under rated game!) - I recommend it to anyone who wants a great but cheap single player game!

Great to see Prince of Persia still up there! Wouldn't have thought it would be the kind of title to stick around in the charts.

It's also interesting that Reach sold so much better than ODST despite it being released only a year ago.
