RETAIL BIZ: New releases storm PC chart

Publish date:

Publishers proved there is still life in the hardcore PC gaming market this week as no less than four new releases storm the format's Top 10.

Electronic Arts' Battlefield: Bad Company 2 took the No.1 spot in the ELSPA GfK Chart-Track PC chart, as it did in the Xbox 360, PS3 and All Formats Chart.

Meanwhile, Square Enix's Supreme Commander took third place – a significant improvement on its still-respectable All Formats debut at No.23. The RTS title was the only other PC release to place in the All Formats Top 40.

Finally, a duo of Ubisoft titles also sold well, with Assassin's Creed II and Silent Hunter 5 debuting at No.5 and No.8 respectively. Interestingly, these titles also marked the launch of Ubisoft's troubled DRM solution.
