Iam shocked Killzone 2 up there *sighs* wii fit......

I hope Sports Resort kicks Wii Fit out of the #1 spot though it's highly unlikely. I'd wish for more deserving games to do so but that's nigh impossible.

Didn't expect Call of Duty to lose to Fifa09 though i'm not too surprised. The UK scene is strange...

Bowser. You Booz, you lose.

Good to see Wii Fit doing so well, I owe the loss of my 15-year long Spare Tyre to that package. Smilie
