Grand Theft Auto San Andreas has finally gone multiformat and - unsurprisingly - re-enters the chart at number one, pushing aside the Star Wars duo.

The PS2 version of the game this week accounts for just 3% of total sales, with the Xbox incarnation making up a whopping 63% of all the copies sold, while the PC version weighs in at 34%.

Cold Winter makes a delayed impact by vaulting 10 places to slot nine after last week's debut at 19 and, while Guild Wars has lost its number one slot in the PC chart to San Andreas, it manages to climb five places to number 10 in the all formats chart.

Car games seem to have lost favour this week, as the Xbox-only Forza Motorsport slips five places to 13, Midnight Club 3 Dub Edition drops seven to 14 and the pretty-much-every-format Need For Speed Underground 2 finally slips outside the top 20 - but, at 21, only just.

this week come in the form of THQ's mod-'em-up Juiced, Medal of Honor European Assault - the latest incarnation of EA's WWII FPS series - and, in unison with the release of its silver-screened sibling, Batman Begins.
