A quiet week for new releases sees Enter the Matrix sitting atop the UK sales chart for the fourth week in succession.
This week's ELSPA official UK game sales chart as compiled by Chart-Track sees Atari's movie-inspired Enter the Matrix enjoying its fourth week at the top. The top six games all retained the same positions they held last week, directly above this week's highest new entry--Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Operation Resurrection for the PlayStation 2.
The only other new entry this week was Konami's Dancing Stage: MegaMix for the PlayStation 2, which at number 13 debuted directly above Dancing Stage: Party Edition for the PlayStation--currently enjoying its 23rd week in the top 20. Games exiting the chart this week included WWE Crush Hour, Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War, Spider-Man: The Movie, Grand Theft Auto III, and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon.
