The superb Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow continues to ride high at number one this week. Although the release of the PC version boosted sales a tad, the lion's share of copies sold still comes from Microsoft's console with over 80% of sales being Xbox units.

It's been one hell of a week for Ubi Soft's Tom Clancy franchise with four titles - Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm, Pandora Tomorrow, Rainbow Six 3 and the original Splinter Cell - all appearing in the top 20. With the first Splinter Cell being a bargain on both PS2 and Xbox, we imagine many gamers who missed out on the original first time around have been trotting along to their local games shop to grab themselves a copy after playing Pandora Tomorrow.

The only new entry is Scooby-Doo! Mystery Mayhem but there are three re-entries to the top 20 - two of them being aforementioned Tom Clancy titles plus Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.

With the main Easter releases done and dusted by last week, it's been a case of titles re-jigging positions with notable climbers being This is Football 2004, Rainbow Six 3 (the highest climber, jumping 12 places) and The Simpsons: Hit and Run. In contrast, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes plummets down to 22 after entering at number seven only last week.
