San Andreas back on top of UK Charts as Halo 2 Plummets

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 03:20 PM MDT | By Neil
GTA: San Andreas has regained its position at the top of the UK all formats software chart, ChartTrack reports. Facing competition from multiformat titles like Need for Speed Underground, San Andreas proves its popularity once more just weeks after smashing UK sales records when over 600,000 copies sold in just two days. Microsoft's Halo 2 suffered a sharp downturn in sales, dropping to #4 behind Vivendi's new PC shooter, Half-Life 2. With seemingly no game able to topple GTA from the number one spot, do we have a Christmas Number One already?

I figured Halo 2 would drop after everyone realized that's it's not worth their time.

Actually the probable reason for Halo 2's slump is that the installed userbase of Xboxes is nowhere near PS2's. Everyone knew it was coming, hence the high sales in first week. Now, everyone's got it that wants it, and the sales have slipped.

neil i never ever post here but love to read what fellow GTA-ers have to say, great place and i visit daily, great community, i semi-agree with your installed base comment, true there arent as many xboxes in euro or in any other territory for that matter but the fact is that GTA has got word of mouth and is frankly a better game, halo 2 is a wonderful game, hands down best XBOX game this year but reguardless of installed base GTA will jump up and never stay down and out for long, halo 2 may have online but GTA kills it in replay value and depth, as if everyoen didint know that one already

The reason why there are more users using PS2 is because PS2 has more games that people want to pay $$ for then any other console. Theres no doubt that Halo2 is fine game. But its just going up against a better game on a better system, so theres no way it can even compete. You cant really even put GTA and a game like Halo in the same category or class. GTA is... GTA. While Halo should be compared to other FPS in the same genre.

Ryan, the PS2 and Xbox share most of the same good titles. It's just more a preference of which exclusive games/controls you'd rather have/use.

Since I'm a bit of a fan of first-person shooters, I'd prefer Halo 2 over SA. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy the GTA series, it's just not as 'exciting' as it used to be. I'll get bored of Halo 2 soon enough, but if/when I get Xbox Live, I probably won't stop playing Halo 2.
