Fight Night Round 4 is No. 1 game in UK

Good news for fans of EA Sports' Fight Night video game series: Fight Night Round 4 became the first-ever boxing game to top the all platforms chart in the UK in its debut week.

The latest GfK Chart-Track data puts the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 boxing game just ahead of Activision Blizzard's Prototype, which moves from its number one position last week to number two, and The Sims 3 and Nintendo's Wii Fit, both of which shuffle one chart place down from last week.

I got my first chance to play the game tonight, and I had a good time with it. I'm not the world's biggest gamer, but I do enjoy sports games, and while this is hardly a beautiful simulation of the sweet science, it's a fun smash 'em up with great graphics, fantastic presentation, and it makes for an all-around fun time-waster with friends. I'll eventually pick it up myself and see how the career mode is, but I give it a thumbs up for now.

UFC 2009: Undisputed was No. 5 on the charts, by the way.
