I don't know, a few games tried to take GTA4 off the top spot (GRID, Rock Band, etc) but the only one that could do it was a game that is released on 4 consoles and is based on films of a recently released sequel (by the way, it's Indiana Jones, not Star Wars, please read the post), the fact that GTA4 is still second though even after this isn't bad.

I would assume it beat GTA IV due to a huge fan base of younger kids (whom would not be allowed to play GTA IV, so a non-mature rating comes into play here), popularity and attention gained from those who saw the movie, and its availability on many more platforms than GTA IV.

I guess the more casual and youger audience can move some product. Even if it is another"Lego" title. Some of the immediate feedback( mostly negative, I'm also guilty) that a lot of the GTA fanbase gave 2-4 weeks after release may have slowed sales down. Nobody wants to drop $60 bucks on a game if his/her buddy says it's not as good as previous titles.
