Toy Story 3’s regained the top spot in the latest UK charts, but it’s Modern Warfare 2 that’s made the biggest gain.

The Infinity Ward shooter, which was at number eight last week, has smashed its way back up to second.

You could say it’s had a bit of a “Resurgence”, innit.

According to Chart-Track, it had a 25 percent week-on-week increase thanks to burgeoning PS3 sales, and may overtake Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training as the “UK biggest unit seller” as soon as next week.

Dance on Broadway, StarCraft II and Red Dead Redemption rounded off the top five.

Get the top ten for the week ending August 7 below. Last week’s data is here.
