And it has finally been topped. SEGA’s amazing soccer management is no longer at the first place of the UK PC Charts, as BioWare’s RPG has managed to claim the first place in its first week of release. Not only that, but The Sims 3: Showtime – that was released alongside Mass Effect 3 – can be spotted at the second place, while Football Manager 2012 is now at the third place. And it seems that Assassin’s Creed III has boosted the sales of Revelations, as it managed to re-enter the UK PC Charts and is now at the tenth place. Apart from these changes though, there is nothing worth writing about. All games lost one-three places and sadly, Alan Wake is nowhere to be found.
Steam’s charts as always tell a completely different story. The game of the year edition of Borderlands is at the first place, followed by Skyrim and PAYDAY: The Heist. It’s been a while since we saw a ‘The Sims’ in these digital charts, but the third part of EA’s series can be spotted at the third place, followed by Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Football Manager 2012. Eugen Systems’ strategy game is selling well, as it’s been in the Steam Charts since its release and is now at the seventh place, followed by the Velvet Edition of Two Worlds II and the game of the year edition of Civilization V. Last but not least, Paradox Interactive’s strategy ‘Crusader Kings II’ is at the tenth place of this week’s Steam charts.
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.
