How They Chart

This top 30 games list is compiled from both independent and multiple sources across the nation. It reflects what's happening in high streets in the two weeks up to September 1 and, like the micro charts, do not take account of mail order sales. The micro charts this week show the number of machines sold in the two-week period ending two weeks before publication date, so they tell the story in the high street between August 19 and September 1.

Neither mail order nor deposit-only orders are included and the prices quoted are for the no-frills models and include VAT. Information for the top selling micros is culled from retailers and dealers throughout the country and, like the game, will be updated every alternate week.

PCN Charts are compiled by MRIB (Computers), London, (01) 408 0240.
