EA’s PC ‘Command And Conquer: Generals’ is down 4 places to No9 and Konami’s PSX ‘Dancing Stage Party Edition’ is down 2 places to No10. The third biggest new entry this week is Konami’s XBox ‘Metal Gear Solid 2 – Substance’ debuting at No13 (PS2 & PC versions are due by the end of this month). The fourth biggest new entry is right behind at No14 – Sega/Infogrames’ Gamecube ‘Sonic Mega Collection’ (featuring 7 classic Sonic titles from the Megadrive era).
