This week’s UK PC Charts have just been released and as we can see, nothing can top SEGA’s soccer manager, Football Manager 2012. It’s really amazing that this soccer game is still at the top of the charts. Star Wars: The Old Republic is at the second place, followed by Battlefield 3. And it’s shocking that Modern Warfare 3 is nowhere to be found. This is a real blow to Activision as last week, Battlefield 3 has managed to surpass MW3 and this week, the gap between these two titles has been increased. Another great surprise in this week’s UK PC Charts is the return of Fifa Manager 12 and the fact that Starcraft 2 has gained three places and can be spotted now in the seventh place.
Steam digital charts on the other hand tell a completely different story. Warhammer 40K: Space Marine is at the first place, followed by Duke Nukem Forever. It’s not surprising that they are at the top places of this week’s Steam charts, as both of them came with an amazing discount. Warhammer 40K’s Dawn of War packages are spotted at the third and fourth place, followed by Jagged Alliance – Back in Action and Anno 2070. Indie lovers will be pleased with the next titles as the amazing 2D game, Fortune Summoners, is at the seventh place, followed by Dungeon Defenders and Terraria. Last but not least, Counter-Strike: Source makes a comeback and is in the final place of this week’s Steam Charts.
Here are the complete charts. Enjoy!
