The UK PC charts are out and as we can see, there is no significant change in the Top 10 best-selling PC games. Football Manager 2012 is still at the first place, followed by Star Wars: The Old Republic and Skyrim, which gained four whole places. Both The Sims 3 and Modern Warfare 3 have lost one place, whereas Battlefield 3 remained at the same place. The big surprise this week comes from BlueByte’s strategy game, Anno 2070 to get back in the Top 10 list and is placed at the ninth place.
As always, Steam’s charts tell a completely different. The Dead Space pack is placed at the first place, followed by Age of Empires III: Complete and Modern Warfare 3. Anno 2070 has also managed to get back into the digital Top 10 charts and can be spotted at the fourth place, while indie game Terraria is one place bellow it. Jagged Alliance: Back In Action will be released next month and its pre-orders have placed it at the sixth place, followed by indie game Q.U.B.E., Dead Space 2 and Saints Row: The Third. Last but not least is Trendy Entertainment’s Tower Defense Action-RPG, Dungeon Defenders.
Here are the complete charts. Enjoy!
