Launched last month, Prisoner of War has become a massive success on PlayStation 2 and Xbox. It has recently achieved best individual format chart placings at No.3 on the PS2 chart and No.2 on the Xbox chart.

While many may have dismissed Wide Games’ concept for Prisoner of War, Codemasters’ belief in its possibilities for delivering a new style of gameplay to the market has been hugely rewarded. It’s an original, non-violent game set in a historic war context, played in confined areas with hyper-alert guards and one where as players have no opportunity to arm themselves with weapons.

Says Mike Hayes, Codemasters’ Marketing Director:
“Prisoner of War offers a new style of gaming; it’s something brave, something original, something non-violent and it’s a success. We’re incredibly pleased. While sequels or “me-too” titles are expected to be the only sure-fire hits, gamers have really taken to Prisoner of War for its novel approach and modern-history adventure setting.”

Prisoner of War is now available for PlayStation 2 and Xbox.

The PC edition of the game will be launched on September 20th and carry a RRP of £34.99.
