UK Charts: EA knocks Tom Clancy off the top spot

EA continues to dominate the charts this week, with no less than four titles, three of which are new releases, taking pride of place in the top 10 all formats chart.

EA continues to dominate the charts this week, with no less than four titles, three of which are new releases, taking pride of place in the top 10 all formats chart.

PC people simulation The Sims 2: Nightlife storms into first position, closely followed by PSP racer Burnout Legends in second place. Madden NFL is a new entry at number nine, but sales of Cricket 2005 have pushed the title back up the charts an impressive ten places from eighteen to eight since last week.

Brian Lara Cricket from Codemasters remains in the top ten, but falls from second to fourth place, ousted from the top by EA and the arrival of acclaimed adventure game Fahrenheit from Atari, which enters the charts at number three.

Activision's movie tie-in Madagascar has crept back up one place to settle at number ten, whilst Charlie and The Chocolate Factory is fairing less well, dropping three places to number nineteen.

VUG's Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction has ended the reign of Capcom's Resident Evil 4, taking pole position in the GameCube charts. The new superhero romp has fallen one place from four to five in the all formats.

Whilst the gaming world awaits the launch of Microsoft's Xbox 360, current generation Xbox charts are fairly fluid, with Atari's Fahrenheit knocking Ubisoft's Rainbow Six: Lockdown off the top spot.

Brian Lara International Cricket 2005 jumps three places into third, but with the exception of SCi's new entry, Total Overdose, the remainder of the Xbox chart is showing a downward turn.

Next week will see the release of multi-format racer Burnout: Revenge from EA, which looks likely to jostle for first place position with its PSP counterpart. Sony will also release the latest home fitness EyeToy application, EyeToy Kinetic.
