Hitman takes down Toca at the top

03/May/2004

Eidos’ third instalment featuring the bald assassin ‘Hitman: Contracts’ (PS2/XB/PC) is No1 after knocking Codemasters’ ‘Toca Race Driver 2’ (XB/PC) down from No1 to No3 in the All Formats Chart.


However, Codemasters score a No8 debut with ‘England International Football 2004’ (PS2/XB) and are No11 with ‘LMA Football 2004’ having been edged out of the Top 10, down from No8. EA’s new release ‘Fight Night 2004’ has to settle for No2, meaning there are now 7 sports titles in the Top 20 of the All Formats Chart, 4 of which are football games (with 5 weeks to go until Euro 2004). Eidos’s Hitman makes a killing, boosted not only by being No1 in the All Formats Chart, but thanks to strong sales of the heavily budgetised ‘Hitman 2: Silent Assassin’ (PS2/XB/PC/GC) which re-enters the All Formats Top 40 at No34.
