Weekly PC Sales Prove Space Still Sells
« on: February 03, 2010, 05:33:48 PM »
Digital distribution outlets Steam, Direct2Drive and Impulse have chimed in with their top PC games of the past week, offering a look at what's hot, what's not, and such.

While it's no great surprise to see anticipated sci-fi games like Mass Effect 2 and Star Trek Online in the listings, pre-orders for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 still managed to top the Steam chart--no doubt bolstered by the pre-order multiplayer beta underway.

Also of note is the impact of discounts. Following a sale where Psychonauts was $2 on Steam, it ranked a respective 8--all the more impressive considering that Steam's list is based on revenue, not volume. Other discounted titles include Company of Heroes (Steam), Red Faction: Guerrilla (D2D) and Gratuitous Space Battles (Impulse).

Lastly, let's not forget that Steam is the only digital distribution outlet that's selling Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 PC, as the game requires a Steam install to play.

I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.
