James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing is number one for its fourth week, seeing off all competition as it refuses to be shaken or in the least bit stirred.

There are only two new entries but both are PC and make it into the top 10. Battlefield Vietnam manages an impressive third slot, while Unreal Tournament 2004 frags its way to number six.

First-person shooters continue to be all the rage with six of the top 10 titles being of that genre. Somehow we don't see that trend changing much anytime soon, especially with developers and publishers driving the genre so heavily.

It's somewhat refreshing though to see that there are now eight different publishers represented in the top 10. Electronic Arts had dominated it for so long in recent months it was beginning to look like a monopoly. Not that we've got a problem with EA making a buck but that kind of domination isn't healthy for the gaming market - or gamers.
