One of the quietest sales weeks of the year in the UK has seen Codemasters’ Brian Lara International Cricket 2005 grab the top spot, as the biennial Ashes series continues against Australia in the real world. The company’s Brian Lara series had enjoyed similar success in the 16-bit era, but this is the first time it has been back at the top of the chart since then – with EA’s Cricket 2005 also faring unusually well, partly thanks to a good run of results from the English national side. There is little other movement of note in the UK charts, though, with the only new entry also belonging to Codemasters, with the company's publishing of Team 17’s Worms 4: Mayhem entering at number twenty-five. The top ten is largely static, with the only significant mover being Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at number five, which rises by eleven places in the wake of the movie’s release in Britain. There are no significant new releases scheduled for the UK next week, or indeed for much of the rest of August, which will likely ensure that the charts will continue to be dominated by these same titles until at least September.
