Sony has its first All Formats No1 since the launch of ‘The Getaway’ (PS2) at the beginning of the year. ‘Socom: US Navy Seals’ finally gets hold of the No1 spot, leaving Atari’s ‘Enter the Matrix’ (PS2, Xbox, PC and Gamecube) at No2.
There are 6 new releases in the All Formats Top 40 this week. The highest new entry is Codemasters’ ‘World Championship Snooker 2003’ (PS2, Xbox) which enters the chart at No10. The other new releases in the All Formats Top 40 are Koei’s ‘Dynasty Warriors 4’ (PS2) at No13, Microsoft’s ‘Midtown Madness 3’ (Xbox) at No14, EA’s ‘F1 Career Challenge’ (PS2, Xbox and Gamecube) at No24, THQ’s ‘Evil Dead: Fistful of Boomstick’ (PS2, Xbox) at No33 and finally Sega’s ‘Sonic Adventure DX: Director’s Cut’ (Gamecube) at No35. With the release of the latest Harry Potter book this week, unsurprisingly the highest climber in the All Formats Chart is EA’s multi-format ‘Harry Potter – Chamber of Secrets’, up 14 places from No26 to No12. However Empire’s ‘Starsky & Hutch’ (PS2, Xbox and PC) also climbs well, up 7 places from No15 to No8.
