This Week's Chart Update

007 still top of the pile, Codemasters makes a late challenge.

Everything or Nothing
It's been another week of big sales - albeit across four platforms - for Electronic Arts' Bond outing Everything or Nothing, as the publishing giant enjoys yet another stint at the top of the All Formats chart as compiled by ChartTrack. Former number one Need For Speed Underground is still hanging in at number ten, spending its 17th week in the top ten. EA also scored a new entry at number eight with Cricket 2004.

LMA Manager 2004 from Codemasters, the definitive soccer management console game, claims second spot after less than a week on sale - maybe 007 is quaking in his (football) boots. But the real disappointment - aside from the gameplay itself - is Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles' frankly poor showing, only reaching fifth place. Maybe it's because it's a GameCube-only release, but it seems that not everything that's FF-branded is sent from heaven. It's pretty much business as usual with the rest of the best, with the fabulous Deus Ex: Invisible War, SOCOM II, Sonic Heroes and Final Fantasy X-2 all still going strong.

With Unreal Tournament 2004 available from this Friday, the biggest-selling games according to ChartTrack should make for interesting reading this time next week.
