The Entertainment Software (All Prices) Chart sees SCI winning this week’s war of the Vietnam-themed games, coming in at No1 with ‘Conflict: Vietnam’ (PS2/XB/PC) ahead of Eidos’ ‘Shellshock: Nam ‘67’ (PS2/XB/PC) which is a new entry at No2.
‘Conflict: Vietnam’ on PS2 has a better launch week than both previous ‘Conflict’ titles, (the PS2 version accounts for 63% of all ‘Conflict: Vietnam’ sales). Last weeks No1 ‘Athens 2004’ drops to No5, while ‘Doom 3’ almost falls out of the Top 10, down from No3 to No10. Codemasters debut at No8 with ‘Second Sight’ (PS2/XB/GC), a game which uses psionic powers – a notion that will become even more widespread when Midway release ‘Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy’ on PS2/XB next month. Nintendo’s award-winning (EDGE innovation award Edinburgh Games Festival) ‘Wario Ware, Inc: Mega Party Games’ (GC) debuts at No20, while topping the Budget Entertainment Top 40 chart.
