Aliens: Colonial Marines was one of Sega's best-selling games last financial year (ended 31st March 2012) despite being absolute pants.
The shooter, made by Gearbox Software - oh really? - shifted a successful 1.31 million copies, according to Sega's annual financial report.
Nevertheless, Colonial Marines remains a sore spot for Sega, having been pelted with critical scorn and even class action lawsuits about misleading advertising. And rumour has it that TimeGate Studios, the team thought to be responsible for the bulk of Aliens: Colonial Marines, has now been closed.
Sega's London 2012 Olympics game has now been top of the UK video games chart for three consecutive weeks.
Break out the flags! Dangle the bunting! Pick up a copy of London 2012: The Official Video Game! The Great British public has been Olympics crazy over the past seven days - enough to propel Sega's video game tie-in to a second number one.
Sega's official Olympics tie-in London 2012: The Video Game has unseated Lego Batman 2 at the top of the UK all-format charts.

Are you looking forward to the London Olympics? I've tried my best to stay chipper about it all. I gamely tolerated the shambolic tickets lottery in the earnest hope of getting to see some track and field - and ended up with swimming, the sporting equivalent of watching a dreary shade of paint that never dries.
I've winced at the breathtaking cynicism and tyrannical contempt of the restrictions imposed on anyone and anything daring so much as to daydream an inadvertent sporting association with "2012" and "London". At least I had a good laugh at the worst logo in the world, a snip at £400,000, and those ridiculous mascots created by an agency I wouldn't trust to design a cat flap.
But the final straw, living as I do in east London, where most of the Games will take place, was when the letter came through from my landlord, kindly informing me I was out on my ear so they could try to cash in on what local estate agents are grandly terming an "Olympic let".

We're keeping our expectations fairly low - Sega's Beijing 2008 tie-in was a dreary affair.
There's an official video game of the London 2012 Olympics on the way and it's called London 2012 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games.
Sega will serve the title to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners next year.
It's a straight-faced alternative to Sega's other, less-serious Olympic offering - the colourful Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
