Now that’s a nice surprise. In the UK retail land, Skyrim has managed to top the ‘The Sims 3’ series and reclaimed its throne. Bethesda’s RPG is selling like crazy and is followed by Football Manager 2012 and The Sims 3: Showtime. Both Mass Effect 3 and The Sims 3 have lost one place and can be spotted at the fourth and fifth place respectively, while Star Wars: The Old Republic, Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai and the remaining The Sims 3 games can be spotted at the very same places of last week’s charts. And Modern Warfare 3 has also lost its place from DICE’s Battlefield 3.
In the Steam land, things are a bit different. Legend of Grimrock is at the first place and is followed by Wargame: European Escalation and Skyrim. Max Payne 3 is coming in one month and a half and its pre-orders placed it at the fourth place. Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion is at the fifth place and is followed by Modern Warfare 3, Might & Magic Heroes VI, Sniper Elite V2 and the all in wonder bundle for Age of Empires Online. Last but not least, Valve’s Counter-Strike: Source can be spotted at the tenth place.
Here are the complete charts. Enjoy!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
