Adored by many so far, Sony and Quantic Dream’s PlayStation 3 exclusive title Heavy Rain has managed to top the UK’s All-Formats chart during its first week of release. With the critical acclaim the game’s received throughout the industry by both the media and gamers alike, it isn’t too much of a surprise to see the game selling so well in other territories. I mean, Joel himself continuously calls me during the middle of the night panting like a cheap hotline hooker at how awesome the game is. I’ll be trying the game myself real soon to get to the bottom of all this heavy breathing by our Deputy Editor. Get it? I emphasized the word “heavy.” No? I apologize.
Falling right behind Heavy Rain in second place is Sega’s Aliens vs. Predator – which was last week’s number one game. Just Dance, Wii Fit Plus, Modern Warfare 2, Wii Sports Resort and New Super Mario Bros. Wii joined the list as well.
