TOCA Racing Driver 2 drops first gear and storms straight up the charts to number one laughing all the way to the finishing line. Outside of that, the top 10 has, for the most part, just shifted down a notch or remained static. However, Norton's antivirus software makes history once again by nabbing second place in the all prices chart, being the only non-gaming software to achieve such a feat. Pretty depressing stuff really and we wouldn't take bets on it not reaching the top slot. Sheesh...

Manhunt re-enters at 16 thanks to the release of Xbox and PC versions, while Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles manages to climb from 24 to 14 to finally break into the top 20. If Norton at number two looks depressing, number 20 won't cheer you up - bask in the heady delights of Driving Test Success Theory 03/04.

And that really sums up a very poor week for releases and a pretty boring chart. The fact that TOCA Racing Driver 2 has the lowest sales figure since 2002 for an all prices, all software number one comes as no surprise whatsoever.
