Popular bookmarker Paddy Power has started taking bets on how long Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto IV will remain at the top of the UK charts, offering odds of 9/2 that the crime epic will stay there for ten weeks.

Nintendo’s Wii Fit is currently lined up at the odds of 6/4 to knock the game off the top of the charts, followed by Mario Kart Wii, which is also a favourite to topple Rockstar’s latest epic.

Paddy Power has previously offered bets on a number of related topics in the videogames industry, such a last year, where the bookie ran bets on how low Sony would cut the price of the PlayStation 3 in Europe.
