This week’s multiformat chart sees Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 holding on to the number one spot for its 9th consecutive week. So, in case you were wondering whether or not everyone on the planet already has a copy of the game then there’s your answer.

After skipping the next three (which are, let’s be honest, pretty predictable) we come to a new entry at 5, which is the excellent Bayonetta. Personally I believe the game should be higher, but it seems that the might of Activison and Nintendo won out this week.

The only other new entry is Darksiders at 8, which seemingly came from nowhere but is allegedly pretty good. I won’t be getting it or anything this week, as I’m holding out for Mass Effect 2 and desperately trying to clear my backlog before it arrives.

You can check out the full chart here. Why not also tell me what you’re planning on buying, if anything?

Capcom’s latest femme fatale, the Sarah Palin-alike Bayonetta, hits the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live with a playable demo across the US and Europe on December 3rd.

Already receiving perfect scores from the likes of Edge and Weekly Famitsu – who awarded the Xbox 360 version of the title 10/10 and 40/40 respectively – Bayonetta is set for release in the US on the 5th of January 2010, and in Europe on the 8th of January 2010.

The game follows the heroine of the title as a witch-cum-sexy-librarian type creature, who blasts her enemies with swords and guns mounted to her ankles and also wears her hair like a costume – only removing it to summon massive demons to help fight off her ridiculously large enemies.

Bayonetta isn’t region free

In a big f*** you to all importers, it has come to light that Bayonetta will not be region free.  Guess we’re all going to have to wait for Sega to release the title to the western world before getting to play this anticipated title.  Anyone got a Jap-Xbox we can borrow?
