Need for Speed back on top

It was also a good week for PC, which becomes the largest selling platform by value for the first time since the release of The Sims 2: Nightlife, as EA’s The Sims 2 claims second spot in the official ChartTrack listings.

Up two places to third is Konami’s consistently strong Pro Evolution Soccer 5, closely followed by EA’s third title in the top four, FIFA 06. Ubisoft’s King Kong slips two places to number five following a heavy drop in sales, whilst last week’s chart topper, Microsoft’s Dead or Alive 4, falls to sixth spot, contributing to a heavy decrease in Xbox 360 unit sales.

Ubisoft’s second top ten title, Rugby Challenge 2006, enters the chart at number seven, just ahead of Take 2’s Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. Activision’s Call of Duty 2 falls two places, settling in ninth spot whilst LucasArts’ Star Wars Battlefront II occupies tenth place for the second consecutive week.

In a good week for sports titles, Take 2’s Torino 2006 climbs an impressive 25 places to claim 13th spot. Faring less well is fan favourite We Love Katamari, the EA-published title failing to make the All Formats top 40, debuting at 23rd in the PS2 full price listings.
