Lara is No1 with highest selling Tomb Raider game launch week

07/Jul/2003

‘Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness’ (PS2 and PC) from Eidos is the new All Formats No1 this week.


It becomes the 5th highest selling PS2 title over one week and has higher opening sales than any other previous Tomb Raider title. Sony manages to grab No2 and No3 in the All Formats Chart with the new Eye Toy Camera game ‘Eye Toy: Play’ (PS2) coming in at No2 ahead of the online enabled ‘Socom: US Navy Seals’ (PS2) which falls to No3. The only other new entries in the All Formats Top 40 this week are 2 PC expansion packs: Vivendi’s ‘Warcraft III: Frozen Throne’ in at No13 and Atari’s ‘Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of the Undrentide’ (PC) in at No16. The highest climber in the All Formats chart is EA’s ‘James Bond 007: Nightfire’ (PS2, Gamecube, Xbox, Gameboy Advance and PC) up 25 places from No40 to No15, due to retailer promotions.
