Brian Lara passes 4th test to stay at No1


England’s dramatic victory in the 4th Test of the Ashes has a significant effect on sales of Codemasters’ ‘Brian Lara International Cricket 2005’ (PS2/XB/PC) which hits a 4th week at No1 in the All Formats Entertainment Chart, up 35% in sales, more than double that of the No2 title, Activision’s multi-format ‘Madagascar’.

The lack of new releases that plagued the summer months comes to an end this week with Ubisoft’s ‘Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Summit Strike’ (XB) debuting at No3 ahead of strong performances from several retailer promoted games: THQ’s ‘Destroy All Humans’, up from No10 to No4, and Giant/Eidos’ ‘Lego Star Wars’ up from No12 to No5. EA’s ‘Cricket 2005’ is bowled out of the All Format’s Top 10 despite England’s performance, falling 8 places from No5 to No13, ahead of new releases ‘Resident Evil: Outbreak File #2’ (PS2) from Capcom and Sega’s ‘Super Monkey Ball Deluxe’ (PS2/XB) coming in at No15 and No16 respectively.
