Eidos fires to No. 1 as Britsoft tops the charts

Eidos becomes the fourth different publisher to reach the number one spot this year, after EA, Capcom and Vivendi/Blizzard and it’s the first All Formats number one for the British publisher since Hitman: Blood Money in May 2006.

Little Britain is the week’s highest climber, rising from 14 to two this week and missing out on the number one position by just 1,000 units. But its performance means that it’s – unusually - two Britsoft companies at the top of the charts this week.

Elsewhere, FIFA 07 sticks at three, but Pro Evolution Soccer 6, Sega Mega Drive Collection, Lost Planet and Need For Speed: Carbon all fall.

Outside of the Top 10, there are new entries for THQ at 13 with Avatar: The Legend of Aang and Capcom at 17 with Okami.

The ChartTrack All Formats Top 10 is as follows:

1. Battlestations Midway     Eidos
2. Little Britain: The Video Game     Blast
3. FIFA 07     EA
4. Pro Evolution Soccer 6     Konami
5. Sega Mega Drive Collection     Sega
6. Lost Planet: Extreme Condition     Capcom
7. Need for Speed: Carbon     EA
8. The Sims 2 Pets     EA
9. New Super Mario Bros     Nintendo
10. Cars     THQ
