PC Sales Charts: R.I.P. NPD Sales Charts

Illustration for article titled PC Sales Charts: R.I.P. NPD Sales Charts

Perhaps because they couldn't be bothered, perhaps because they were becoming a joke, we don't know. But The NPD Group have announced that they will no longer be releasing weekly PC sales charts.


We'll still get the monthly listings, but the weekly charts are no more. Leaving us with only the Steam and Direct2Drive charts as a weekly barometer for the spending habits of the PC gaming market.

So no more snide comments about World of Warcraft or The Sims, OK? From here on in, it's snide comments about Left 4 Dead and Counter-Strike Source.
