Well I'll definitely buying MOH this week or next, the retail chart still baffles me..

Lack of marketing on alot of games?

FFXIV had been on amazons top purchase lists top 10 for weeks, odd it didn't show up here as it finally released last week.

I've been wondering this myself. My best bet is either that many people are buying from online stores (or direct from Blizzard) - such as Amazon or Play.com.

who preorders from steam seriously? The prices are always higher by quite a bit than from online retailers.

MOH looks really good but I'm still trying to get level 50 on BFBC2, so until then, no new games.




But I will be pre-ordering Fallout: New Vegas sometime, as soon as I get my money straighten out

Um, no. Not only is the Steam chart visible on the page, disagreeing with you, but StarCraft 2 isn't available on Steam - nor is Steam taken into account by ELSPA's chart. As I said, ELSPA must get their info heavily from the likes of Amazon.

Does this mean Sims 3 is still selling on a month to month basis? Surely only so many copies can be sold?

Cause that means I am missing out on something too awesome (stopped playing at Sims 2) to comprehend.

Forget the retail chart. They should do the 'The Pirate Bay Chart'
