Best-selling PC download games of the week: 5-year-old 'Civ IV' outsells 'Civ V'
Tuesday 11 May 2010
Pre-orders for the next
Civilization strategy game started in earnest during the week of May 3-9 as
Civilization V picked up a healthy amount of interest on the Steam Network's store for downloadable PC games, not dampened by a vague release date of "fall 2010".
Modern Warfare 2 was boosted by a weekend sale and the presence of extra multiplayer maps in the Stimulus Package, while Civilization IV (first released in 2005) was part of a cross-promotion with the Civ V pre-order.
The Codemasters Racing Pack benefited from a similar cut price deal, containing as it does the excellent DiRT, DiRT 2, FUEL, GRID, and ToCA 3, and the Guild Wars Trilogy of online multiplayer adventure games was also a bit of a bargain being made available for half the usual price in celebration of the first game's five-year anniversary.
