Stranglehold ships over a million worldwide

A top ten selling game in the UK for five weeks following launch.
Midway has today announced that its John Woo action title Stranglehold has shipped over a million units worldwide, with the European launch of the PlayStation 3 version to follow later this month.

The game remained in the UK Video Game Top Ten for a five-week period following its launch and was a Top Ten title in North America for the month of September according to data from the NPD Group.

(a) the PS3 version has just been released in the US for less than a week, (it was released in the US on October 29, 2007,) and,

(b) the PS3 version has not been released in Europe and most most parts of the world?

The "over a million units" refers the Xbox 360 and PC versions, and the title is incorrect.

And this should be in the Xbox 360 and PC channels as well.

I think he meant Stranglehold sold 1 million for all consoles together but it was the PS3 version that tipped them past the 1 Million mark.

The PS3 was launched in the US on Monday - this Monday.

The Midway announcement was made on Wednesday. The script and numbers for the announcement had to take time to prepared. Let's give 'em a day.

Seriously doubt they could get the sale figures in just one or two days. Even VGChartz (who usually gets their numbers before NPD or everyone else does) has to wait till weekend to get their figures.

The game isn't going to do well on the PS3, even more so in Europe.

but only because of the very few quality ps3 games available at the moment

Shipped inequals sold. Or what? Bad title in the article, if it has actually sold over a million already.
