Halo 2’s position at the top of the UK sales chart has caved in to the huge size of the PS2's installed base, with Microsoft's killer app dropping to number four in the charts. Following its capitulation, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has regained its number one position, fighting off competition from Electronic Arts’ multiformat Need for Speed: Underground 2 and Vivendi’s PC FPS Half-Life 2. The latter has become the third fastest selling PC game ever in the UK, behind Championship Manager 4 and The Sims 2. However, with online-only purchases via Steam not being included in the data, its performance may have been even greater than this suggests. Other big-name PC titles have failed to penetrate the top twenty, with both Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault and Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines failing to register. At this busy time of year, though, it is wrong to brand any title a failure purely on its chart position, with final sales figures providing a truer account of a game’s fortunes.
