Command & Conquer Generals, from Electronic Arts has taken the market by storm claiming victory at retail outlets nationwide for two consecutive months. The modern warfare-based game has been ranked the No. 1 selling PC game for February and March, according to NPD Group/NPD TechWorld.

Command & Conquer Generals drops players in the center of global warfare where they are challenged to become a powerful general and control massive armies with cutting-edge military weaponry. The game features three unique sides -- the mighty U.S. Forces, the Chinese war machine and the resourceful Global Liberation Army - each with customizable high-tech arsenals ready to deliver unprecedented firepower on land or in the skies. Battles unfold in a graphically rich 3D environment where players can engage online with up to eight friends, jump into intense head-to-head multiplayer mayhem or go it alone against the computer.

"We're thrilled to see Command & Conquer Generals still flying off store shelves two months into the launch of the game," said Chip Lange, vice president of marketing at Electronic Arts. "Based on the game's No. 1 sales ranking, Command & Conquer Generals definitely has earned itself 'must buy' status for real-time strategy enthusiasts."

"The Command & Conquer Generals development team created a graphically stunning modern warfare experience with deep, challenging gameplay that clearly resonated with consumers," said Mark Skaggs, executive producer at Electronic Arts. "We're excited at how well the product has been received and are inspired to outdo ourselves in developing the next chapter in the Command & Conquer series."
