It's an EA-only top three this week as FIFA 06 holds on at number one for a second week, while Burnout Revenge drops down to three to make room for Tiger Woods' entrance at two, with PGA Tour 2006. Black & White 2's sixth place debut makes this another successful week for the publishing giant.

Sega's Spartan Total Warrior settles at eight with ninth place taken by the first of the Nintendogs trio: Lab & Friends.

The remaining Nintendogs pups make it into the top 20: Dachshund & Friends at 13 and Chihuahua & Friends at 20. The combined sales of the three editions would have put Nintendo's DS doggie training sim in third place.

The final new entry for the top 20 comes from Ubisoft with its release of the second campaign this year for Brothers in Arms; Earned in Blood marches into slot 16.

This week sees the release of movie tie-in Wallace and Gromit The Curse of the Were-Rabbit; the weird and wonderful FPS shenanigans of Serious Sam II; and a Marvel double-bill with Ultimate Spider-Man from Activision and Marvel Nemesis Rise of the Imperfects from EA.
