Red Faction #1 on charts.

  Today THQ gladly announced that their malevolent first person shooter Red Faction has made it a top the record charts, as it became the number selling videogame for the week of May 20-26. Red Faction hit store shelves on the 22nd of May, giving the game only four days to sell 60,000 units. 

  "We are thrilled with consumer response to Red Faction for PlayStation 2," said Brian Farrell, president and CEO, THQ. "As an internal developed brand boasting cutting-edge, proprietary technology, Red Faction represents an original intellectual property we intend to harvest through the next gaming cycle." 

  "As soon as Red Faction hit our shelves, it was instantly the top-selling game for any system," said Pete Roithmayr, vice president, merchandising, video game division at Electronics Boutique. "We anticipate Red Faction will remain a strong seller for the coming months." 

  This just goes to show you that if you haven't gotten Red Faction for your PS2 yet, then you are severely missing out on one of the best FPS titles on the market, and I can't stress that enough. Both EB World and THQ are expecting a good life-span of sales for Red Faction, and I do too. I'm quite positive that we'll see a sequel of some sort by Volition, if in fact they aren't in current planning stages for one. You can see the review of Red Faction right here.
