PC Sales Charts

Illustration for article titled PC Sales Charts

Never let it be said PC gamers are a stupid lot. This is the first week we've been able to track Grand Theft Auto IV's performance across all three charts, and things could be...better.

The game's debut at bricks-n-mortar retail during the week ending December 6 saw it reach...seventh spot. Behind a Sims 2 expansion. This despite a surprisingly hefty marketing campaign for the game (heck, there were posters all over my local mall for the re-release).

Goes to show, PC gamers are a savvy lot. You release a busted game, and they just won't buy it.
