(Belated) Byte vs Brick, Week Ending 12 Nov

I'm sorry our weekly comparison of the top-ten best-selling games on Steam with the top ten best-selling PC games at UK retail is a day late. I was busy standing by the side of a motorway waiting for a tow-truck yesterday. If only I'd stayed indoors and played more Skyrim - a lesson we can all take something from, I think.

So, what will prove to be the best-selling PC game of last week? Can you guess? Of course you can.


Steam (including preorders):

1. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
3. Saints Row: The Third
4. L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition
5. RAGE
6. Foot-to-ball Manager 2012
7. Dungeon Defenders
8. Sonic Generations
9. The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
10. Batman: Arkham City

UK retail/etail (not including pre-orders):

1. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
3. Foot-to-ball Manager 2012
4. Battlefield 3
5. The Sims 3: Pets
6. The Sims 3
7. The Sims 3: Generations
8. Rage
9. The Sims 3: Late Night
10. L.A. Noire

So, well done Skyrim. Toppling MW3 after just a week at the top is no mean feat. Oddly ugly elves > surly soldiers.
