All change as Sims claims top spot

The news will silence those who have hailed PC gaming as dead; the PC unit share hit 40.6 per cent this week, a new high for the format and a rise of 14 per cent from the week before.

The lack of available PSP hardware has clearly had am impact on PSP software sales. None of the titles that dominated the charts at the beginning of September remain in the top ten, though EA’s Burnout Legend debuted at number two.

Atari’s acclaimed adventure title Fahrenheit makes a big impact on the listing, charting at number three. The excitement surrounding England’s Ashes victory over Australia sees Codemasters’ Brian Lara International Cricket 2005 stay high in the charts, though it does slip from second to fourth despite a sales increase of 40 per cent. Also riding the wave of popularity is EA’s Cricket 2005, which climbs an impressive 12 spots from number twenty to eight.

VU’s Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction stays rooted at number five, the same spot it claimed last week. Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six: Lockdown falls five spots to sixth whilst Eidos’s Mexican themed slaughter-fest Total Overdose debuts strongly in seventh.
