A small number of new entries in the UK sales chart has painted a peculiar picture of the British market, as it begins to emerge from the long summer games release drought. On the back of continued success for the English national team in the ongoing Ashes tournament, Brian Lara International Cricket 2005 has claimed its third consecutive week at number one and its fourth overall. In addition, in a week of notably low sales, budget-priced stand alone expansion pack Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike has managed to enter straight in at number three, although it is the entry of super budget priced Sonic 3D at number nine which gives a real hint at the market’s lack of vitality. Priced at just £5 ($9), the eight year old Sega Saturn port has still managed to outsell new entries Resident Evil: Outbreak – File #2 at number fifteen and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe at number sixteen. Next week’s charts will cover the launch period of the PSP in Europe, and retailers and publishers alike are hoping that this will be the catalyst for stronger sales and higher profile releases across the board.
