Publish date:

Despite some stiff competition from four new entries in the ChartTrack All Formats Top Ten, Sega's Wii and DS sporting outing Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games maintains its grip at the top of the charts for the third week in a row.

According to sister publication MCV, this marks the sixth time that the Beijing-themed outing has ruled the UK charts roost.

Another licensed title having a good week is Lost: The Video Game from Ubisoft, which is a new entry at number three. The game, which is available on PC, PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360, is backed by a hefty marketing campaign, including online, a two-week TV blitz and print.
