PC download charts: 'DC Universe Online,' 'Dead Space 2'
Tuesday 25 January 2011
DC Universe and
Dead Space 2 feature in this week's PC games download charts (collected January 24), with the comic book heroes of DC Universe occupying top spot and chilling space horror
Dead Space 2 not far behind in both Steam and Direct2Drive's top fives.
That's the basis of the only major change in Direct2Drive's top five as well: Dead Space 2 in at second, Divinity II falling to eighth.
The original Dead Space jumps to fourth on Steam thanks to a pre-order deal that bundles it with Dead Space 2 for $7, €5 or £5 extra prior to the latter's release on January 25 (January 28 in Europe).
GamersGate reaps the benefits of a sale on King Arthur: The Role-playing Wargame and associated expansions, following on from the announcement that a King Arthur II is indeed in the works.
Impulse joins Good Old Games in stocking up on classic titles, with Baldur's Gate I and II making their way into the Impulse chart.
