The Xbox 360 version of EA Sports' Fight Night Round 4 topped the weekly U.K. sales charts for the second week in a row, and was one of seven EA-published SKUs to make the top 10 in the region for the week ending July 4, according to Chart-Track.

The PlayStation 3 version of Fight Night Round 4 dropped one slot to number three, pushed down by Nintendo's Wii Fit, which climbed to the second slot from the fourth slot a week prior.

Other EA-published games making the U.K. top 10 were The Sims 3 for PC, Grand Slam Tennis and EA Sports Active for Wii, and Tiger Woods 10 for Xbox 360 and PS3.

The MotionPlus-enabled Wii version of Tiger Woods 10, lauded by some critics as the definitive version of the game, debuted at number 16 on Chart-Track's list.

Games dropping out of the top 10 from the prior week included the Xbox 360 version of Activision's Prototype, the Sony-published (in PAL territories) Ghostbusters: The Video Game for PS3, and Nintendo's Professor Layton and the Curious Village for DS.

On the separate all-platforms chart that combines sales of all versions of a given title, Fight Night Round 4 was the top-selling title overall.

Below are the unit sales rankings for individual platforms for the week ended July 4:
