Byte vs Brick: Week Ending Oct 15

Lists! Two of 'em, in fact. But what do these lists do? They compare the top-ten selling PC games of last week on Steam with the top-ten selling PC games of last week at UK retail. What could we learn from them? Nothing, probably. Apart from which game companies became slightly richer over the last few days. Well done, those companies.

Steam (including pre-orders):

1. RAGE
2. THQ Hit Collection
3. Might & Magic Heroes VI
4. Metro 2033
5. Dungeon Defenders
6. Red Faction: Armageddon
7. Fable III
8. Duke Nukem Forever
9. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
10. Orcs Must Die!

UK Retail (including etailers; not including pre-orders)

1. Rage
2. Might & Magic: Heroes VI
3. The Sims 3
4. The Sims 3: Generations
5. Pro Evolution Soccer 2012
6. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
7. FIFA 12
8. The Sims Medieval
9. World of Warcraft: Cataclysm
10. The Sims 3: Late Night

Most notable new entry there is Might & Magic: Heroes VI. I'm playing that at the moment, and will have Thoughts for you quite soon indeed.
