It seems that the force was too strong last week for Take 2's PSP breakthrough, GTA: Liberty City Stories. It's been almost nothing out of the ordinary the past few years for a GTA title to shoot right up to the top of the charts in opening week. This year however Lucasarts' Star Wars: Battlefront II managed to overcome GTA: Liberty City Stories by being the number one selling game in the UK.
It is not all bad though for GTA: LCS. The game is currently the top selling PSP game in the country and it had sold more copies than Grand Theft Auto: 3 on the PS2 did on its opening week. You have to remember that the PSP only recently launched in the UK and Star Wars: Battlefront II is available on the PS2, Xbox and for PC, which more people own than they do PSP's.
As the days go by to this years christmas holiday season GTA: Liberty City Stories will most likely still be at the highest point of the charts around the world!
