U.S. Console Sales Chart  April 2005

U.S. Console Sales Chart April 2005

May 25, 2005 | By David Jenkins




Xbox games have dominated the U.S. console charts during April, in a relatively quiet period of releases. The port of PC hit Doom 3 has proved a huge success, with the Xbox versions of Midnight Club 3, Splinter Cell 3 and Lego Star Wars also performing well.

Format exclusive Jade Empire did not quite live up to sales expectations, with a nevertheless creditable entry at number eight in the charts. From the previous month God of War has increased its standing in the charts, at the expense of Gran Turismo 4 which has ended its two-month rule at the top by falling to number eleven.

The highest ranked PSP title is Need for Speed: Underground Rivals at number thirteen, with Twisted Metal: Head On at number fifteen and Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade at number seventeen. The highest ranked Game Boy Advance title is Lego Star Wars at number fourteen with no GameCube or Nintendo DS titles listed in the top twenty.
