MW2 was UK's best-seller in 2009

ELSPA and GfK Chart-Track release full year charts

Activision's Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 topped the UK all formats chart in 2009 as the year's bestselling game, according to data released today by ELSPA and GfK Chart-Track.

EA's FIFA 10 placed second, while Nintendo titles Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus rounded off the top five.

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed II came sixth, ahead of Nintendo's Mario Kart Wii and Sega's Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games.

Demonstrating the massive popularity of the Call Of Duty and FIFA franchises, 2008 releases COD: World At War and FIFA 09 took ninth and tenth on the annual chart, respectively.

"There is no doubt that 2009 belonged to Activision, but it was a strong year for many software developers and publishers," said ELSPA director general Michael Rawlinson.

"The rise of family-orientated, multiplayer games in 2009 also demonstrates how videogames have expanded into new genres finding fresh audiences. If nothing else, last year confirmed that we are now a nation of enthusiastic and energetic gamers here in Britain."
