UK PS3 charts: Nothing can stop WaW

The feeling of ‘deja vu’ is in the air, since this is the fourth consecutive week Call of Duty: World at War remains in the top of the charts.

Activision has hit the jackpot with their “one CoD per year” tactic. The next Call of Duty Modern Warfare title is due to visit us in Fall 2009.

Here at PS3 Attitude towers we are ok with that “Fifalization” of the franchise, as far as they keep producing innovative quality games.

But let’s see Chart Track’s UK Charts for week ending 6 December 2008…

Insomniac Games were always attached to Sony. In case you were living under a rock during the 90′s, Insomniac didn’t began developing games yesterday. They are the masterminds behindSpyro and the less known Disruptor.

We all know that Insomniac is an merely independent studio, so is there anything stopping them from developing and multi-platform title?
