Brits: Crazy About Resident Evil 5
Capcom's Resident Evil 5 just establish a new record, this time in Great Britain. The game entered the charts and stopped only at the top.
March 17, 2009
The Xbox version surpassed Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X., while the PlayStation 3 title managed to eventually beat Guerilla Games and their Killzone 2. In the all-platform top, the game proved that not even Wii Fit is fit enough (some pun intended) to match its speed.
Hardware sales were given a boost by the release of the game as well. Resident Evil 5 was credited to be responsible for over 27% of all revenues from console games in the UK last week.
In addition to all these victories, Resident Evil 5 also became the biggest ever launch in the country. Not a bad track for one game's work.
