This past week saw a massive resupply of ammunition for both the Sony and Microsoft fanboys on the treacherous European front of the current console war -- first of all, the highly anticipated Killzone 2
nabbed the top spot in the ELSPA GfK ChartTrack Top 40
, and became the fourth fastest-selling Sony-published title
ever released in the UK. Its first place finish in the Top 40 charts gave it an edge over number two finisher Halo Wars
. You read that right, people. Killzone 2
has become, as many of its zealous acolytes claimed it would, a "Halo killer."
However, the situation isn't exactly grim for said murdered Halo
title -- within its launch week, it became the UK's best-selling console RTS to date, beating out former leader Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
by a three-to-one margin. So ... we guess Halo
is a "Command and Conquer killer," now? We're not sure. All this inter-franchise homicide is hard to keep track of.
