Sam Fisher is still the man as Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow hogs the top slot for its third week in a row. Gamers continue to be enamoured with its light and shade stealth gameplay and rightly so - it stands heads and shoulders above other recently released console shooters.

The new entry of the week is World Championship Rugby, managing a very impressive sprint to number five. Coming on the back of England's World Cup win, it was the obvious, yet still smart, move from publishers Acclaim to get a title out there quick time and it's clearly paid off.

There are a number of re-entries into the top 20, the most significant being Crash Bandicoot - Wrath of Cortex and The Sims, the former jumping nine places to 12, while the latter notches up a 15 position hike to 16.

Overall, it's been a very good Easter period for UK software sales, being the third most lucrative week of 2004. All formats have seen a significant jump in sales and and software units flying off the shelves are 13.7% up on this time last year.
