As RAGE is almost upon us, it’s only natural to see it at the first place of the Steam charts. The Steam charts count the games’ pre-orders and from what we can see, many PC gamers went ahead and pre-ordered iD Software’s upcoming FPS. Next one is Dead Island – which lost its throne – and then comes The Witcher 2. Seems that the V2.0 patch did the trick the game gained seven places. Not bad, not bad at all CD Projekt RED.
In the UK PC retail land on the other hand, Fifa 12 seems to be the definite winner. EA Sports’ soccer game has managed to hit the first place in its first release and showcases that PC gamers can really appreciate all those sport titles. It’s also remarkable that A Game Of Thrones – Genesis has managed to get at the sixth place. Great work Cyanide.
Here are the complete charts. Enjoy!
