Vegas 2 chalks up 2 million sales

Clancy that.

Ubisoft has revealed that Rainbow Six Vegas 2 has passed the 2 million sales point.

The tactical shooter has exceeded the publisher's expectations, apparently, so it has put its profit predictions up by EUR 45 million.

"As expected, 2008 is off to be a record year for the videogame market and our games have performed remarkably well in this context," said Yves Guillemot, privileged-space filler in the Ubisoft car park.

"Assassin's Creed and our Games For Everyone brands continued their strong performance and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 had a better than expected start.

"One year after the great success of the first title, the second iteration, which provides another unique multiplayer experience in the much enjoyed Tom Clancy environment, is ranked among the top games on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in almost every country."

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 shot to the top of the charts after its first week on sale. It fell to second this week behind Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, with sales dipping by a hefty 50 per cent.

We went to Vegas 2 and enjoyed our stay; it was more an incremental follow-on than fully-fledged sequel, and whether you take that as good or bad omen should perfectly mark out if you should buy it or not.
