EA’s multi-format ‘FIFA 2004’ stays at No1 in the All Formats Chart for a third week (PC and GBA versions are new this week), despite strong competition, particularly from THQ and from Activision.
THQ’s PS2 exclusive ‘WWE Smackdown! Here Comes the Pain’ enters at No2 with the 12th highest sales week ever, higher than last year’s ‘WWE Smackdown! Shut your Mouth’. Activision’s GTA-style title ‘True Crime: Streets of LA’ (PS2 and Xbox) comes in at No3, ahead of Vivendi’s cartoon take on the same GTA title ‘The Simpsons: Hit & Run’ (PS2, Xbox and Gamecube) which climbs 4 places from No8 to No4. The only other new entry to make it into the Top 10 of the All Formats Chart is Activision’s multiplayer supported ‘Medal of Honor’ clone, ‘Call of Duty’ (PC). There are 4 other new entries in the All Formats Top 40: Lucasarts’ Gamecube exclusive ‘Star Wars: Rebel Strike – Rogue Squadron III’ at No14, Ubisoft’s Xbox Live ‘Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3’ at No15, EA’s ‘Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup’ at No19 and finally Microsoft’s Xbox Live ‘Top Spin’ at No35.
