Crysis 2 wants you to be many things as you kick some serious alien ass threatening mankind in the year 2023 (what other ass would you be kicking by that time?), but one thing the game doesn't appear to have any trouble being is EA's biggest game launch yet this year. The multiplatform sequel to the 2007 PC exclusive is already tearing up the software sales charts, across all platforms.
According to Chart-Track, Crysis 2 is the UK's top selling title this week; the Xbox 360 release was the best-selling version of the bunch, accounting for 57 percent of the game's total sales thus far in the region, while the PS3 and PC versions followed at 29 percent and 14 percent respectively.
One thing to keep in mind about the PC sales from these reports is that they are only counting the boxed retail sales, and you can bet Crysis 2 was no slouch in the digital distribution arena. The title is currently the second best-selling title on Steam, only bested by the insane pre-orders for Portal 2. Crysis 2 isn't doing so bad on Stardock's Impulse, landing at fifth place in the online store's top seller list, while it's numero eight on GamersGate.
It's looking like a good year for shooter sequels, for EA at the very least!
