As we suggested would happen last week, FIFA 2005's multi-format attack proves too strong for Pro Evolution Soccer 4's temporary PS2-exclusivity and FIFA reclaims the top slot. The rivalry may yet continue when PES4 hits Xbox and PC on 19 November.

In a week of few notable releases, LMA Manager 2005 does itself proud by securing position seven and once again proves it's top of the league when it comes to football management sims on consoles.

X-Men Legends is the only other release to make the top 20 and the rest of the charts remain fairly static. Although certainly worthy of a mention is LucasArts' Star Wars Battlefront, which bucks the trend by moving back up four places to number four, having dropped from top position to number eight two weeks ago.
