Zombies beat Space Marines – news at eleven.
Per the story over at Eurogamer today, the first weekend of the Autumn Games Apocalypse (TM) saw big-hitter titles like “Dead Island”, “Warhammer 40K: Space Marine” and “Resistance 3” battling for domination at the top of the UK All Formats Games Chart.
And, as intimated above, Techland/Deep Silver’s controversial Zombie-slashing RPG “Dead Island” made it a one-two for new IP as Relic/THQ’s “Warhammer 40K: Space Marine” entered the all-format charts at the top spot and second place, respectively. Sony’s “Resistance 3” reasserted the popularity of the series and platform by scoring a fourth place debut – last week’s number one, the multi-format Ubisoft “Deus Ex: Human Revolution” slipped to third.
In related news, Game are now stocking new release Blu-Ray movies as well as the gaming titles that their name suggests – you can pick-up your copy of the new “Star Wars” blu-ray from their locations alongside your copy of “Gears of War 3”. HMV selling more iPods than CD’s, Game selling BDs – whatever next?
