Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix does the trick for EA, entering the chart at No.1, ahead of Take 2's new IP The Darkness. Shrek the Third climbs ten places to No.3 and only 11 units separate it from second place. The top five is rounded off with two further new releases, with Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition at No.4 and More Brain Training debuting at No.5.
It was a strong week for the Xbox 360, with six new entries in its Top 10. The Darkness leads the way at No.1, but is followed by Overlord, Hour of Victory, Call of Juarez, Tenchu Z and Harry Potter.
Ubisoft's Rainbow Six Vegas is a new entry for PS3, at No.7 in the All Formats and No.1 in the PS3 chart.
Releases to look out for this coming week include Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Parappa the Rapper and Scarface The World is Yours for Wii. However, don't expect much change at the top.
