A strategic game of thrones, or a bed of thorns?

EA Sports' FIFA 12 has earned the third biggest all format launch week in the UK, besting Grand Theft Auto IV. This knocked down Gears of War 3 2nd.

Faithful to the world imagined by George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones - Genesis emphasizes the backstabbing and political intrigues which are common in Westeros and the fight for the Iron Throne.
Fantasy tie-in A Game of Thrones is doing pretty well for itself on television, so Cyanide Entertainment hopes they'll capture the videogame equivalent.
