After PSP's record breaking launch lunacy, software sales for the device have cooled considerably, down 60% on last week with every PSP title that assaulted the top 20 either sliding down the chart or remaining static.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Lockdown proves a hit with Xbox gamers - who make up 76% of total sales - and shoots straight in at number one, speeding past the sublime Ridge Racer for PSP, which drops back to fourth place.

Shimmying its way up 12 places to number three is Novalogic's Delta Force Black Hawk Down, while Incredible Hulk Ultimate Destruction smashes its way in at number five. Konami's PSP FPS, Coded Arms, is the third highest chart newcomer debuting at 19.

Also worthy of a mention is In2Games' Gametrak Real World Golf - the second title to utilise the unique Gametrak motion-sensing controller - which is proving to be popular amongst PS2 gamers and drives its way up the chart to number 17.

The most notable new release this week is undoubtedly Burnout Legends for PSP, although The Sims 2 Nightlife expansion pack should also perform well on PC. And with England's success against Australia in the Ashes series, we expect Brian Lara's International Cricket 2005 to maintain a lofty chart position.
