PC Sales Charts: The Thin Red Line

On the NPD charts for the week ending February 28, Dawn of War II reigns supreme. But on the more current Steam and Direct2Drive ones? It's all Empire: Total War, baby.

Yes, proving that the PC market's thirst for epic strategy titles is as strong as ever, Creative Assembly's latest Total War title has come in at #1 on both the digital download charts. I'd write more about this, but I've got a war in India to wage. You understand.
