Sega’s Aliens vs Predator has taken the top spot of the ELSPA GfK-ChartTrack All Formats Top 40 in its first week, dethroning BioShock 2 after only one week.
The game is now the fastest-selling title of 2010 so far – another honour it seizes from BioShock 2, which saw sales drop by 71 per cent.
The game, available on consoles as well as the PC, is developed by Rebellion, which gain gained a lot of critical and commercial success with the original Aliens Vs Predator video game back in 1999. The game is again a tense first person shooter allowing you to play as the deadly creatures from both Predator and Aliens, as well as the Colonial Marines from the latter.
This is the first of a series of Aliens based games from publisher Sega, following a lucrative licensing deal with 20th Century Fox.
