[With Fallout 3 topping UK charts I should have titled this “sequels unrelated to original games top charts”… Ooh, handbags.]
The Big K posted up this week’s US retail PC chart, and Far Cry 2 is in with a, er, bullet at number one. That does please me, despite the general opinion circus we’re facing with the game. More importantly, Kotaku are making a commendable effort to balance out the brokenness of the NPD chart by also posting the Steam and Direct 2 Drive charts. Of course there are no explicit numbers available, so there’s no way to amalgamate and come up with a realistic overview of PC game sales across all outlets, but it does give a fairer impression of the overall picture than the retail charts and their Sims expansion packs.
NPD top ten after the jump.
1. Far Cry 2
3. Nancy Drew: The Haunting of Castle Malloy
4. WoW: Battle Chest
5. The Sims 2 Apartment Life Expansion Pack
6. Dead Space
7. The Sims 2 Double Deluxe
8. Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning
9. World Of Warcraft
