Mario Kart back on top

Wii racer racks up ninth number one in the UK

Mario Kart Wii is once again sitting pretty at the top of the UK charts, marking its ninth week at the number one slot.

The office favourite racer saw a six percent jump in sales (that's probably the rest of the our building hearing how much fun we're having) to beat Wii Fit to the top slot, which itself slumped 24 percent in the sales department this week.

Sitting at the number three and four slots, expectedly, is Sega's Olympics double-whammy Beijing 2008 and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. Unlucky Australia, by the way.

The full list is as follows:

  1. Mario Kart Wii - Nintendo
  2. Wii Fit - Nintendo
  3. Beijing 2008 - Sega
  4. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games - Sega
  5. Wii Play - Nintendo
  6. Guitar Hero III: Legends Of Rock - Activision
  7. Soul Calibur IV - Ubisoft
  8. Big Beach Sports - THQ
  9. Dr Kawashima's Brain Training - Nintendo
  10. Guitar Hero: On Tour - Activision
