EA's racer is the biggest week 4 All Formats No.1 since the release of Gran Turismo 2.
EA is celebrating yet another All Formats No.1 with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 street racer Burnout Paradise knocking SEGA's Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games from the top spot.
Burnout Paradise enjoyed the largest week 4 All Formats No.1 since Sony's Gran Turismo 2 some eight years ago. Fanboys also have reason to attack with the Xbox 360 version taking a slight lead with a 53% share of the game's sales.
Although slipping one place in the All Formats Chart, SEGA's Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games holds onto the Individual Formats No.1 ahead of the two Burnout SKUs.
Nintendo is the only other publisher with a new entry inside the Top 40, with Donkey Kong: Jet Race for Wii shooting above its weight at No.33.
