DICE can definitely be proud of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 after the successful opening week that it has had at retail. Coming in at #1 on the UK’s sales chart is something to be proud of, but when you also outsell the original installment by a margin of 3:1, that’s an entirely different story.
According to Chart-Track, BF:BC2 is the “best ever launch for any game released this early in the year.” We’re not too sure how impressive that is since most blockbuster releases take place right before the Holidays, but it’s definitely a quote worthy of the box art’s backside.
Sony’s exclusive title, Heavy Rain, is still selling strong by maintaining its spot in the top five and SEGA can be excited about holding two of the top five slots with Aliens Vs Predator and Sonic & SEGA’s All-Star Racing. Check out the complete Top 10 below.
