Lucasarts and Ubisoft take a third week at No1 on the Entertainment Software All Prices Top 40 thanks to ‘Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith’ (PS2/XB/DS/GBA) – the film actually launched this week but sales of the videogame are down 27% over last week, although the GBA version bucks the trend by increasing 28%.
Eidos climb one place to No2 with PS2/XB/PC ‘Championship Manager 5’- sales are down 13% overall compared to last week. Microsoft’s strong debut position last week at No2 with Xbox ‘Forza Motorsport’ remains pretty solid, down just one place to No3 (even though sales on the title have dropped 37% over last week). Eidos/Giant Interactive remain at No4 with ‘Lego Star Wars’ on PS2/XB/PC/GBA, sales down just 9% over last week. Rockstar/Take 2 climb one place to No5 with ‘Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition’ (PS2/XB), with EA right behind at No6 with ‘FIFA Street’ (PS2/XB/GC). This week’s big new entry comes courtesy of Eidos and Spanish developer Pyro Studios (of ‘Commandos’ fame) – ‘Imperial Glory’ debuts at No13.
