We'll get right to the point. Max Payne is the #1 game in North America & Europe this past two weeks. Take Two released a statement today saying this..

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 15, 2001--Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO - news) announced today that its Max Payne, which is published under the Company's GodGames label and was developed by Remedy Entertainment and produced by 3DRealms, has been confirmed as the largest grossing PC game in North America and Europe according to NPD INTELLECT (U.S.), CharTrack (UK), Mediacontrol (Germany) and GFK (France) for the two week period ending Saturday, August 11. ``We are very pleased that Max Payne has been greeted by a record level of customer demand for one of the Company's PC products on a global basis,'' said Kelly Sumner, Chief Executive Officer.

We know Max has been moving well out of 3DR HQ, and it's really cool to see this kind of report online - thanks to everyone who has made the game such a big success!
