Call us unimpressed with Battlefield 3’s success. Although its single player is a COD ‘clopycat’, its multiplayer is really addictive and that’s its biggest feature. Battles are intense and quite frankly, there is nothing out there that comes close to Battlefield 3 oh, and I suck as a pilot… jets are not for me after all. Regarding the retail sales, we can also see that Stronghold 3 has managed to gain a place, whereas iD Software’s RAGE has lost three places and can be spotted at the end of the chart.
As usual, Steam digital sales tell a completely different story. We should note that Battlefield 3 is not available on Valve distribution service which explains its absence. Football Manager 2012 is still the King of the Steam sales, followed by Skyrim and Dungeon Defenders. Batman: Arkham City’s pre-orders are a bit lower this week, whereas Dead Island has fallen in the last place of the Steam Chart.
So, here are the full 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.
