Who's going to have the pleasure of knocking EA's FIFA Street off the top spot? Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory was a strong contender when it launched last week, but even with increased sales it has only managed to hit number 2 in the Chart-Track-compiled ELSPA UK All-Formats Chart for week ending April 9.
Activision's Xbox version of Doom 3 was also strong contender when it crawled from the bowels of hell last Friday, but it's only managed to scream into the charts at number 3.

Any other contenders? Not this week. Doom 3 is the sole new entry this week, although THQ's Full Spectrum Warrior did storm back into the top 20 at number 18, reinforced by the new PS2 version.

So with few new faces to welcome we're instead forced to watch several titles begin the slippery slide out of the charts. At the top end GT4, Brothers in Arms and TimeSplitters: Future Perfect are all losing ground, while Devil May Cry 3 and Metal Gear Solid 3 crash into the lower half of the top 20.
Super Mario 64 DS has had a DS sales resurgence, climbing from 11 to 8, but aside from Vivendi's Robots and EA's The Urbz (which are both heavily multi-format) it's the only DS game in the charts.

There is one encouraging sign, though: Resident Evil 4, one of the best games ever to give us an inordinately sweaty arse-crack, has climbed 14 places to number 22. This is clearly because we held a moment's silence in its honour last week. So this week, we're appealing, Bono-style, for everyone to go out and buy a copy so it can blast FIFA Street in the head with a tuned-up Broken Butterfly and take its rightful place at number one.

Next week look out for Rockstar's Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition and Sega's The Matrix Online.
