Warner Bros. and Eidos' Batman: Arkham Asylum tops this week's UK all-platform charts, following its August 25 launch to critical acclaim. This bumps Nintendo's Wii Sports Resort, which has sold over 1 million units to date in the region, into second place.

Codemasters' Ashes Cricket 2009 spends its second week in the third position, after two weeks of leading the charts. The publisher's Gusto Games, last week's third-placer, falls out of the top ten entirely. Wolfenstein, last week's number two, comes in at number four this week, while Wii Fit lost one place to come in at number five.

Elsewhere in the chart, Codemasters' Ashes Cricket 2009 remained at number three for another week, Wolfenstein dropped two places to number four and Wii Fit dropped one place to number five.
