· EA’s ‘FIFA Street’ enjoys a healthy Easter with all 3 formats (PS2/XB/GC) enjoying a rise in sales and becomes No1 on this Chart in its third week of release. Sony’s ‘Gran Turismo 4’ (PS2) managed 2 straight weeks at No1 but is down to No2 for it’s third week on sale (although still No1 on PS2 Full Price), followed at No3 again by Ubisoft’s big new release from last week, ‘Brothers In Arms: Road To Hill 30’ (PS2/XB/PC). This week’s highest new entry at No4 is EA’s ‘Timesplitters: Future Perfect’ (PS2/XB/GC), developed by British studio Free Radical Design. The astute amongst you will have remembered that ‘Timesplitters’ and ‘Timesplitters 2’ were published by Eidos, but Free Radical announced a switch of publishers back in January 2004.
Also new and debuting right behind at No5 is Capcom’s ‘Devil May Cry 3: Dantes’s Awakening’ for PS2. EA’s ‘Rugby 2005’ enjoys a healthy second week, up 4 places to No6 (PS2/XB/PC). Eidos are down 3 places to No7 with the second week of ‘Championship Manager 2005’ on PC, whilst Konami drop 2 places to No8 with ‘Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater’ (PS2). Nintendo’s ‘Super Mario 64 DS’ at No9 flies the flag for DS as the lone title within the Top 10 (down one place from last week), whilst EA’s PC ‘The Sims 2: University’ takes the last of the top 10 positions, down 3 places from last week. The last of the new entries this week is THQ’s ‘The Punisher’ (PS2/XB/PC) debuting at No14. Capcom’s Gamecube ‘Resident Evil 4’ debuted at No5 last week but now drops to No19 in this Chart, although retains top spot on the Gamecube Full Price Chart.
