Ubisoft’s ‘Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow’ (XB/GBA) debuts at No1 in the All Formats Chart and becomes the 3rd best selling Xbox title over one week, only marginally behind the original ‘Splinter Cell’ and ‘Halo’.
There are now 4 Tom Clancy titles in the All Formats Top 40, with ‘Jungle Storm’ at No11 (and No1 in the All Formats Budget Chart), ‘Rainbow Six 3’ re-entering at No21 (thanks to the release this week of the PS2 version) and the original ‘Splinter Cell’ still selling well at No24. It also means Ubisoft have 2 titles in the All Formats Top 5 with the highly anticipated ‘Far Cry’ debuting at No4 in the All Formats Chart (with a No1 position in the Full Price PC Chart). ‘Far Cry’ also becomes the highest selling PC-DVD game ever, deposing Atari’s ‘Unreal Tournament 2004’ (PC), which drops from No6 to No9. Konami’s Gamecube exclusive ‘Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes’ enters at No 7, performing better in its first week than any format of ‘Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance’ (XB/PS2/PC), but only achieving just under 14% of the launch week sales of ‘Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty’ (PS2). There are a total of 6 new titles in the All Formats Chart this week, all of which are exclusive to one format (except Pandora Tomorrow which is 99% XB and 1% GBA). The other new entries are Sony’s ‘This is Football 2004’ (PS2) in at No15, Vivendi/Sierra’s ‘Counter-Strike Condition Zero’ (PC) in at No19 and finally Ubisoft’s ‘Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life’ (GC) in at No26.
