ChartTrack reports that Activision's Guitar Hero 5 has claimed the All Format No.1 in a week which saw six new entries in the Top 40.

The battle of the bands saw Guitar Hero 5 overpower EA and MTV's The Beatles: Rock Band, which, despite an extra few days at retail, managed only fourth place in the chart. Guitar Hero 5 is the first game in the blockbuster franchise to take an All Formats No.1 position.

Interestingly, both Guitar Hero 5 and The Beatles: Rock Band sold best on Xbox 360. Guitar Hero 5 on Xbox 360 was the second best-selling individual formats title of the week (behind DiRT 2 on Xbox 360), while the PS3 version placed at No.9 and Wii at No.11. The Beatles: Rock Band managed No.8 on Xbox 360, No.12 on Wii and No.13 on PS3.

At No.2 is Codemasters' DiRT 2, Eidos' Batman: Arkham Asylum drops two places to No.3 and Wii Fit is at No.5. Elsewhere 505 Games' IL2 Sturmovik sees a sales dip of only 3 per cent over its debut week and falls just a single place to No.7, Championship Manager 2010 is new at No.13, Mini Ninjas takes fifteenth position and South Peak Games' Section 8 just misses out on a Top 20 place at No.22.

The big hitters continue to roll into stores on Friday, with EA's Need for Speed: Shift most likely to take the No.1 spot. Also available will be Heroes over Europe, Katamari Forever, MotorStorm: Arctic Edge, Kirby Superstar and WET, plus PC versions of Batman: Arkham Asylum, Red Faction: Guerrilla and Resident Evil 5.
