EA knocks its own title off the No1 position in the All Formats Chart this week with ‘Medal of Honor: Rising Sun’ (PS2/XB/GC) grabbing the coveted top spot and pushing the multi-format ‘FIFA 2004’ down to No3.
This is EA’s third different title to make it to No1 in the All Formats Chart in the past 10 weeks as opposed to only the one title, ‘FIFA 2003’ during the same 10 week period in 2002. EA’s ‘Need for Speed: Underground’ (PS2/XB/PC/GC) holds on to the No2 spot, while EA’s ‘Lord of the Rings: Return of the King’ (PS2/XBOX/GBA/GC/PC) drops one place from No3 to No4. The only other new entry in the All Formats Top 10 other than ‘Medal of Honor: Rising Sun’ is an Ubisoft title: ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’ (PS2/GBA), which debuts at No10. The highest climber is Sony’s ‘Eye Toy: Play’ (PS2) which climbs 7 places from No18 to No11 with its highest sales week since its launch 22 weeks ago. Microsoft’s ‘Project Gotham Racing 2’ (XB) debuts this week at No17 in the All Formats Chart, and at No1 in this week’s Xbox Chart ahead of EA’s Xbox version of ‘Medal of Honor: Rising Sun’ which enters at No2. There are 2 other new entries in the All Formats chart this week: Ubisoft’s highly acclaimed cell shaded fps ‘XIII’ (XB/PC/PS2/GC) comes in at No30 and Vivendi’s ‘Crash Nitro Kart’(PS2/GBA/XB/GC) is a new entry at No35.
