The latest UK Retail and Steam Digital PC Charts have been unveiled and as we can see, The Sims 3 and ArmA II: Combined Operations are the best selling PC games for this week. The Sims series seems to be dominating the UK Retail charts, as there are six ‘The Sims’ titles in the Top 10. Diablo III has lost the first place and is currently following The Sims 3, while Battlefield 3 has managed to re-enter the charts.
Steam’s Digital Charts are – as always – way different than the Retail ones. Bohemia’s military sim FPS is still the best selling PC game in Valve’s digital distribution and is followed by Borderlands 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Skyrim and Orcs Must Die! 2. The Game of the Year Edition of the first Borderlands is at the sixth place, whereas Civilization V – Gods and Kings and Bioshock’s Franchise Pack are at the seventh and eighth place, respectively. Last but not least, Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition is at the ninth place and is followed by Batman: Arkham City.
Here are the complete charts. Enjoy!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
