PC game charts: November 5-11

Sims 2 cycles Happy Holiday Stuff add-on into the top 10 as the original game settles in at six spot; Pets expansion tops chart once more.


The Sims 2 Pets has marked its territory, and that's at the top of the US PC game sales charts. The industry-tracking NPD Group has released its rankings for the week of November 5-11, and the add-on to Electronic Arts' open-ended life simulator tallied the most units sold for the week, just as it did the week before and the week before that.

The Sims series is no stranger to the PC charts, as it routinely lands multiple titles in the top 10, and the week of November 5-11 was no exception. The Sims 2 claimed sixth place, while The Sims 2 Happy Holiday Stuff was the only new release on the charts, entering at number 8.

Atari's Neverwinter Nights played runner-up to The Sims 2 Pets once again but still beat out longtime chart juggernaut World of Warcraft for the second spot. Blizzard's massively multiplayer online role-playing game came in third place, followed by EA's futuristic shooter Battlefield 2142 and Microsoft's Flight Simulator X Deluxe (the standard Flight Simulator X package held the ninth spot on the charts).

The last two open slots on the week's charts were claimed by a pair of popular licensed tie-ins. THQ's previous chart-topper Cars Radiator Springs Adventures placed seventh, while Buena Vista Games rounded out the list with its game adaptation of the hit TV show Desperate Housewives.
