Modern Warfare 2 rules the UK for seventh consecutive week

Modern Warfare 2‘s iron grip on the UK sales chart continues. With a 17% rise in sales over last week, Infinity Ward’s latest remains the most sold game in the country. However, there is a challenger on the horizon — FIFA 10. After seeing an 18% rise in sales, the EA game was just 2,000 copies behind Modern Warfare 2‘s numbers last week.
