I'll admit I'm very surprised by the list of PC games. I hadn't realized that Sims 4 was still so popular. C&C "was" a great game in the day. So interesting that Australians are rediscovering it. Is it due to price or a desire for an RTS style game and there haven't been many? Though a year back there was "Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak" which was very good in my opinion.

Glad to see that older games are still being purchased.

@Louis: honestly I don't think the PC games list is really telling us much. Notice the tagline saying "Physical game sales" and that it doesnt include digital sales. How many places still sell physical PC games anymore? I know around here its only Walmart and Microcenter, possibly best buy but

I haven't checked in years. If you go look and see whats sitting on the shelf at those places you will find recent ubisoft games, Activision games and a handful of older stuff. Notice any specific publishers dominating that PC sales list? ;)

If they had actual sales numbers we would see that the actual number of physical copies sold is probably totally irrelevant when compared to the total volume of PC games sold. It would look really sad when compared to the consoles (since a large percentage of console games still sold are physical copies. It's the smart way to buy them since they can be resold, unlike a digital copy). I don't mind the lack of resale ability on digital pc games because I always buy at discount, but it's extremely rare that I'm willing to give a major publisher 60$ for a undiscounted title.

@flatovercrest: Excellent points! I read the article so fast I missed the line that digital sales were not included. Myself I usually buy my games off of Steam (or other sites) and like you at a discount. Only at Christmas will I "treat" myself with a new game at a full price.

Thanks!
