This week's UK game charts see Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince soar to the top spot, as the movie debuts in the country, while Transformers and Tiger Woods follow closely behind. Although sales of Electronic Arts' latest Harry Potter movie license only rose by 5%, it was enough to see it top the charts. EA has now had four separate titles reaching No.1 for six of the last seven weeks. Wii Fit also made it back up to No.4, having been in the countdown all year, and elsewhere in the charts, Nintendo's Rhythm Paradise (aka Rhythm Heaven) re-enters the Top 40 at No.21, aided by a TV advert starring Beyonce Knowles. The rest of the charts saw mainly minor shifts from the week previous, with titles like Fight Night Round 4 and The Sims 3 continuing Top 10-reaching sales stints. The all-platform UK gane charts are as follows: UK Charts: All Platforms 1. Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince (Electronic Arts) 2. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Activision Blizzard) 3. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 (Electronic Arts) 4. Wii Fit (Nintendo) 5. Fight Night Round 4 (Electronic Arts) 6. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (Ubisoft) 7. The Sims 3 (Electronic Arts) 8. Virtua Tennis 2009 (Sega) 9. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Activision Blizzard) 10. EA Sports Active (Electronic Arts) Leisure software charts compiled by Chart Track, (C)2009 ELSPA Ltd
