Byte vs Brick, Week Ending Nov 20, 2041

Brick vs Byte usually concerns the top ten best-selling games on Steam vs the top ten best-selling games at UK retail over the last week, but as both charts are barely changed from last week and frankly that's no fun whatsoever to read about, we instead contacted our Future Industry Analyst Dr Ian "Ian" McGuess to provide an accurate look at what he'd expect said…

(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…

Byte vs Brick: Week Ending Nov 4

Every single damn week, I can't remember if it's called 'Byte vs Brick' or 'Brick vs Byte.' My failing memory terrifies me. Though my girlfriend is vaguely appreciative of it, as it allows her to tell me the same anecdotes repeatedly with me having no clue I've heard them before. At least, she claims she's my girlfriend; I can't rightly recall if that's the case…

Byte vs Brick: Foot-to-ball vs Battle-to-field

Last week was a big, big week for on-off gamer-enrager EA, with the absurdly highly-promoted Battlefield 3 finally launching - but to mixed reviews, technical woes and bewildering media outlet favouritism. Was it enough to put DICE's latest at the top of the charts? In the UK, that's a resounding 'yes' - it topped the all-formats charts as well as the PC chart individually, with…

Byte vs Brick: Week Ending Oct 7

Again! Again! It's our theoretically regular comparison of Steam's top ten best-selling games over the last week with the same at UK retail. Will Rage have stormed its way to the top despite the outrage and buck-passing surrounding its technically-troubled PC launch? Or will foot-to-ball have conclusively proven that an Englishman's national sport is more important to him than pretending to be a time-lost survivor…

Byte vs Brick: Week Ending Oct 1

And again! A not entirely industry-representative yet unquestionably fascinating/depressing look at what comprised the top ten PC game sales for Steam compared to UK retail over the last week. Will The Sims' dominance of retail continue unabated? (Obviously). Will there be any surprise returns to the Steam top ten? (Yeah, actually). Read on to find out the answers to both these questions and more, as…

Byte vs Brick: Week Ending Sep 17

Time for another one of our in theory regular but in practice highly irregular comparisons of the last week's top ten best-selling PC games on Steam, and at UK retail. Obviously there are all manner of ways in which these are not fair or entirely meaningful comparisons, not least in that Steam's metrics can tend towards the cryptic, that Steam's includes pre-orders but UK retail…

Byte vs Brick: This Week’s PC Charts

I KEEP saying I'll do this regularly, but something about numbered lists makes me curl into a tiny ball and weep for mother. Anyway, let's do it this week and maybe I'll be a better boy again next week. Here's the top ten best-selling released PC games on Steam last week, in comparison to the top 10 at UK retail. As always, there are some…
