The UK PC Retail and Steam Digital charts have been revealed and as we can see, Diablo III and ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead are at the top places. As usual, the UK PC retail charts are, somewhat, similar to last week’s. Max Payne 3 lost three places, whereas Shogun 2: Total War Fall of the Samurai and Battlefield 3 gained one and three places, respectively.
Contrary to UK’s PC retail charts, Steam’s Digital charts show what’s great about PC gaming. Bohemia’s ArmA II is an old game but thanks to its amazing zombie mod, DayZ, it has managed to claim Steam’s throne. Bohemia must be really thankful and grateful about it. And that’s precisely why our dear developers should be offering mod tools.
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.
