In predictable fashion, the only changes to the UK sales chart this week are due to wide-scale discounting of second-tier Christmas titles. The chart positions of Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, Lord of the Rings: The Third Age and The Urbz have all benefited from this, although obviously at the cost of a lower profit margin. Lower-ranked titles such as Shrek 2, Burnout 3, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Simpsons: Road Rage have also been affected in a similar manner. None of these changes, however, have challenged the top two titles, Need for Speed: Underground 2 and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, which are likely to remain in residence for a good number of weeks to come yet.
